Kaori loves the ocean and choose a sea foam green color for the applique, it is a fairy frost so it sparkles. The quilt is 104 X 104 inches. The pattern is called Fish on Coral and it was designed by Elizabeth A Akana (copyright 1972). I started the applique and had a lot of wonderful help from my mother who did all of the outer border and the outer edge of the center design. This is the finished top, now for the quilting. I was going to have the quilt hand quilted, but reality set in, this is going to a young family, I want them to USE IT. I am going to put it on the long arm today and machine quilt it. I still intend to do echo quilting in all of the white area, so this will involve a turn on the frame, I will keep you posted on my progress. Happy Stitching all... Cheri

past February. Judy picked a great Star variegated thread for this quilt, bright oranges, greens, and yellows, the back of the quilt is as fun as the front. Thank you for letting me quilt your quilts ladies, they are beautiful.
Happy Stitching all...

I choose almost all poison greens for this block and I was a little worried it would stick out when put next to the the other blocks, so I pinned it up next to the finished blocks. Getting it up on the wall and taking a picture gives me a little distance to evaluate the mix. I think it is going to be okay and I just love these greens with the turquoise blue of the peahen. So for now I will just keep happily stitching.
