Outfoxed on the High Seas

I finished putting all the blocks for my High Seas quilt together yesterday/last night. I'm pretty happy with how they line up - not perfect, but you only notice if you look closely!!



I'm trying to decide whether to put a border around it (thinking not at this stage) and considering how to quilt it. I'm thinking of quilting the lighter swirls quilt densely so they sit quite flat (either echo-wavey type design, or even spirals), and not doing much to the darker ones... but any ideas would be appreciated :)

To get this quilt top finished was my 'one thing, one week challenge' aim (I was hoping to get it pin basted as well, but the main aim is achieved, so YAY!!)

Glad I've finished the top - it can languish in my WIP pile until I decide what to do, while I get on with my swoon blocks!

Hi there! This is really nice - you did a great job, and picked super colors, too. (Personally, I'm color challenged sometimes. LOL)

Congrats on meeting your goal, it is lovely! Normally I would say no border, but I kinda think a border would be nice!
