Another Scrap Quilt Finished

Do you see it...the sandy shore, the grassy hills, the waves, the islands and all the ships about? Its a lap-sized wedding quilt for a couple that love to scuba dive! He even proposed under water ! The waves are machine quilted with blue thread, of course!
If I had more nerve, I'd have called it Islands in the Stream. :)

I like it! Also I like how you did not over do the machine quilting - some people put so much machine stitching in it that I feel it would be kind of stiff? or does that not happen?

Too much machine quilting can make a quilt stiff. In this case, I thought about a second line of waves but I was afraid I didn't have enough blue thread! :) It still wouldn't have been alot of quilting, just a bit more.

Lovely quilt! I like the simple waves, and the scrappy fabrics.

Miri, it is SO pretty! Actually the scrappy squares look a lot like some of the nautical flags.
