 This quilt back is coming together really quickly. I love the juxtaposition of the yellows / oranges with the purples and browns. The concept is that the strips will look like coral or seaweed and bubbles waving in the ocean currents, with the fish and sea creatures and swimmers peeking through the vegetation.
Wether it "works" or not, I love the colours and it will be a fun quilt back. Or maybe this will be the front . .?

My grandmother died a two days ago, and I found out yesterday morning. We were not super close, but I am going to the funeral. I'm taking a bus to Ottawa, then driving up with my brother Rob and sister Kim. Its 9ish hours across Northern Ontario to New Liskeard. I kind of feel like I'm about to enter the plot of a Can lit novel or road trip movie . . . wish me luck.

The quilt back (or front) is looking great...I especially like the mermaids swimming through. :D

You have my condolences on the loss of your Grandmother. I hope your trip is an easy one.
