I finished piecing the top two weeks ago. It took several days to decide on how to quilt it. I had picked flowers and leaves before I was told NO FLOWERS.
Do waves, I was told. So I picked an overall wave pattern. Nope. Don't do waves across the whole quilt, just parts of it. So I changed gears again. I was intrigued by the water theme, so I stuck with that. I spent so much time browsing the web for quilting designs. I liked leaves and seaweed-like plants. Finally, I sat down to quilt.

Can you tell I'm such a freemotion beginner? My other projects had been smaller - what a difference trying to get it under the sewing machine.
I've returned to the sashing. Not quite as difficult, now that I've gotten used to dealing with the size of this quilt. Still not happy with it. I have a few ideas, and I've picked a different thread. I may have to pull out the few bits I've done.
I'm close. Once I get into the groove of the green, I bet it will move right along. I'm hoping to have that done in a week or so, and another week to do the cream squares. Then it's on to the binding. I might have this summer quilt done by the first day of Fall. What do you think? (Snowball's chance in summer?)
