I worked hard today on this quilt. I'd say there are at least five hours put into quilting it with free motion sewing using turquoise variegated thread around the framed photos and objects. I think it has a mix of a Mexican look and water where the fish are swimming and Jim is fishing.
I then cut up pieces of his Hawaiian shirts and pieced them together and used that long strip for the binding, which brings together all the colors in the quilt. It's pinned down and I will hand sew it into place while watching the Presidential debate tonight on TV.
These photos unfortunately do not bring out the vibrant colors in this quilt. But enlarging them will show you more detail.
