To give you a size perspective, I posed with it (all squinty-eyed in the bright sun).
My aunts were amazed how quickly it all went together, and that I stitched it all on my little Singer. They wanted me to enter it into the Topsfield fair, but unfortunately, it won't qualify because it doesn't have three layers. Maybe next year's Marshfield fair?
these ones) are pretty close. The stitching also looks so much better in person. The seaweed flows around the sashing. Everyone admired the seaweed and the fact there were different ocean-themed motifs in each block. They also all liked how the quilting looked on the plain flannel back.
The label was tricky to put on. I had to make sure I stitched it only through the flannel, and didn't catch any of the top material. It also took me several attempts to print it on my printer. I need to work on that. Half the reason to get a new inkjet printer was to use it for quilt labels! They get jammed three or four times before I get a good print.
More closeups may appear in another post, if I feel I can capture how they look. Otherwise, you'll need to swing by my place to see it in it's glory.
