Seaside Rose Hourglass

Here it is! I finished the top some time ago, but I just quilted it week before last (during Spring Break, if you can believe it), and I finished binding it just this past Thursday.
I've never really been a pastel person, but I went through a phase of buying all those pastel lines, and now I've got to do something with them. I do love how this turned out, though.
I mostly stippled all over, but I did a spiral in the corner squares and a vine with flowers on the border. This is only my third quilt using my free-motion quilting machine, so I'm not very skilled. But it washed up really nicely, and it keeps us warm when we need it to. I probably should have at least pre-washed my binding so it wasn't quite so wrinkly. Oh, well, I love it anyway.

You know I love this. I still have quite a bit left, how much do you have? The whole print makes me want to visit the ocean.
