    I'm posting a picture of this flip flop quilt I made several weeks ago. I'm going to free motion quilt it. I know what to do with the blocks. I'm going to do some wavy lines reminiscent of sand dunes. I don't know what to do with the sashing. Any ideas? I could stitch in the ditch, or just do straight lines up and down and side to side. Can anyone suggest anything more imaginative?

    I had an idea to try to do little flip flops, which would be sort of a kidney bean shape with an inverted "V" for the thong, but I don't know how to join them together and make it look right. If I do that, I would need to do each one individually.

    What would you do? Maybe I should stick with my original idea, bite the bullet, and live with the tedium of it.

    This is really cute. Could you do something that looks like shells? They would be easier to connect.

    Maybe write out "fun in the sun, beach combing, flip flop" or something else fun and catchy?

    I like the shells idea too. I think I might even have a template for that in one of my books. Even if I only did it at the intersections it would be cute. I also thought of plumerias, which are kind of like stars, only round instead of pointed.

    I thought of waves too. That wouldn't be difficult to do. And since I'm kind of a beginner, easy is good.
