    Well, I am not particularly happy with the looks of it from the back. And the squares didn't line up too well when cut 1/2" from stitching as directed. But now I have to do the border. I will be glad to see this one finished. It is taking toooooo long to suit me.

    Wow your FMQ meander is so tiny! It looks great but I can see why it is taking so long with such close spaced quilting.

    That is part of the embroidery. It is all done in the hoop. Each seashell is a separate block with the stipple included. The stipple alone for each block is about 10,000 stitches.
