The turtles arrived and they are perfect. Just a bit darker than the seahorses. I replaced # 20 (from top) with it. I also found something I though might be good as #9 (from top). As always, opinions and suggestions are more than welcome, Wes en I really like it now. @Iminei’s suggestion earlier was quite the eye opener  :thumbsup:

Your colours are gorgeous - and I covet your turtles and your seahorses!!!! Who are the fabrics, by, if you don't mind me asking?

If you see me with a seam ripper, now is not a good time

@Lisalou1965 both are Kaufman fabrics, I found them in a local online store. The seahorses are sold out, the turtles come in two different colorways.

Values sewn together into blocks and laid  out - I’m happy with it.

As I don’t have anything that  could serve as a design wall, I played on paper. THis is what I’m going to do, the sashing will be grey, and will be the same width on top and bottom as on the sides..

Looks like a seascape through a window already.

Strips pieced together (not quilted yet), sashing finished quilting. This is a bit less than half of the quilt laid out (there will be 6 water strips) - not enough floor space for all of it. The border will be grey as well.
Next step quilting the ‘water’, then sewing the strips together. I read and watched a lot about QAYG... looking forward to see the quilt ‘grow’.

Thank you @BrendaP, I wouldn’t have gotten that far without all the help I got here sorting the colours out. There is still a looooooooong way to go.

Gorgeous! So subtle but very effective. Makes we want to try something like that. I look forward to seeing it finished.
