I have no idea how to quilt the top. And without a walking foot,(I think that is what I need) didn't think I should even try. I am sure I would have made a mess of it. Instead I just did the "ties". I think my quilting lingo is all wrong. Are those called ties?
The fabric is Amy Butler, lotus. I trimmed it, in order to make it larger, with fabric I found at my local quilt store. Backed in a darker shade. Don't you think it sort of simulates ripples in water?
It measures 72x72, 3x3 squares of 20x20. Large enough to be used as a new beach blanket.
