Shell quilt top

It's come out very nicely, I think. Now I just have to work out how I want to quilt it. I'm fairly stuck on that one. Aunty D has suggested that as it has so many diagonals, to use horizontal lines for the waves and spirals inside the shell. Not sure if I like that idea or not. It's sitting pinned to a noticeboard above the sofa while I get on with my Hoffman Challenge quilt, I'm sure something will come to me sooner or later. Though D would quite like to be able to sit back on the sofa without hitting his head on the board, especially as it has a few pins on it!

Every time I pulled up LJ today, I've seen this, and it's just so gorgeous! Wow.

Thank you! I just put it in as this journal's background as well, and I'm really enjoying having it sitting on the sofa to glance at happily.

Incidentally, if I ever go overboard with long posts or pictures that are too large, anything that will hog your friends page or just not be what you want to be looking at all the time, let me know and I'll shove in an LJ-cut. I made it a smallish picture, although I lose track a bit as I change sizes a lot of my screen for the sake of my dodgy eyesight. If you click on it, there's a larger version where it's stored on Flickr.
