Here are the seahorses pinned to the design wall waiting for seven right facing seahorses. I am going with this staggered layout...and currently I am thinking of a crowded ocean with no sashing. This also means touching noses and back fins.
I also finished the first round of machine quilting on the bounding bunnies. I pin the quilt top to the batting (as if making a reversible quilt) and do an allover pattern of stitching in the ditch...in this case along the horizontal sashing. Next, I will repin to the backing and finish quilting. I discovered I really liked this process when I made the first I-spy quilt because machine quilting the top and batting is such a breeze. Also, I can layer the quilt without any wrinkles or puckers.
Okay, so there is a major wad of mess in the right corner. I was hoping you wouldn't notice.
