I quilted a mariner's star in the white squares.  Suggested by Annette and Lynne showed me a pick of a mariner's star block that I used out of Block Base.

Finished my Ocean Waves Quilt today! Whoo Hoo!  It's approximately 75x75 and took about six weeks to quilt.

I agree, Carla! I'm quilting a vintage grandmother's flower garden and am loving the variation in the flowers. I recently bought a smaller piece of one from the 40s (?) that will be about baby quilt size when finished. I'm having to move a few flowers to even it out and sewed a few more from vintage fabrics. Very fun. I'm on a real vintage roll these days. Have to stop checking out the flea markets and antique stores!

Well, I found piecing a red and white a bit boring but quilting it is fun. I guess it made me realize that I really do love scrappy quilts when it comes to pieces. Seeing how the fabrics play off one another in each block really brings me joy!

I did that on an Irish Chain because I though simple was good.  It wasn't.  It was boring.  LOL now in retrospect that's probably why it took next year's to complete!

I've just sandwiched a quilt that I made just to use up some if my repros and am debating whether or not to handquilt it.  I need to think about this for a bit longer.  I don't want to commit myself to handquilting yet.  At least not until I finish another top.  One chore at a time.  When the temperature drops to -20C, I always want to handquilt.
