Beachside quilt

Doesn't this pretty quilt remind you of all the good things about living by the sea. I have been on an Angela Walters course recently at The Cotton Patch in Birmingham. I was planning to put the classes into practise, but Anne wanted a quilt for a gift quilted and slipped this one in the bag too. So I was very bold and have tried out two of Angela's designs on this quilt.

I did have issues with thread snapping, but thanks to lots of hand holding from the Longarm learning FB group, I got is sussed for the larger quilt. Here you can see the back and forth lines that I thought looked like either the sea or wind. I also did a square design in the borders and sashing and treated the yellow and green outer borders as one.
