Charity Quilting: Something Fishy

This is one of the very first kits I cut from purchased fabric for Annapolis Quilts for Kids.  I cut two kits because I almost always buy entirely too much fabric.  This kit was made with leftover blocks from the other quilt.  I bundled it all up and handed it over to a friend to sew the blocks together.  I think she did a great job!
I wanted to capture the movement of the water with the quilting on this one.  There are swirls, and whirlpools, and gentle waves.  The quilting was done with King Tut from Superior Threads.  This thread is a great cotton thread that I would recommend if you like variegated threads and want your quilting to stand out.
I did manage to get the binding attached and finished before I handed it in.  If you want to see how I quickly finish my binding, check out my page about all the little tricks I've learned over the years.
Such a fun quilt!
