There were a lot of little pieces to sew together, but I really love it and think it would also make a great table topper in perhaps a fall colorway. I found some great batik fabrics recently with a fall feel so I'm sure I'll be making another one soon.

Under the Sea
I like to make small or miniature quilts. I find it too hot here in South Florida to really use quilts but I love to make them (just like I love to knit but have no need for heavy wool items) so I like to make small ones to use as wall hangings. I saw the "Under the Sea" quilt in the Darlene Zimmerman book "Fat Quarter and Small Quilts". I love the simplicity of it and that it was just two colors. I found two batik fabrics that seemed very calming to me and reminded me of the ocean. I quilted the blocks with a criss-cross pattern and echo quilted the border of the quilt.
