    Last year I asked for assistance in naming my marine quilt for my scuba-diving son. I received loads of wonderful names and after consulting with DH we chose "Carpe Diem - Seas the Day", which was suggested by teacherbailey.

    Thanks to everyone for all the wonderful input. I had difficulty narrowing it down to about eight and then gave the final choice to DH.

    Here's a couple of pics -

    I also included photos in the quilt.

    That is not a quilt, that is a master work of art!

    What creativity and skill you have shown, and the result is stunning. Thank you for sharing.
