    Thanks guys. I designed and pieced the quilt using the technique developed by RaNae Merrill and my quilt is in her book entitled "Magnificant Spiral Mandala Quilts". Her instructions are wonderful and the group that worked along with her (via internet) while she wrote the book has so many quilts that make mine pale in comparison!

    I titled the quilt "Pieceful Sea" because of the starfish and shells I see and of course because of the numerous pieces - I am kind of corny when it comes to naming things!
