More Sea Glass

Obviously, I have a good bit still to do, and then there will be rework before it is ready to be shown, but it's now down to the bottom border. Thankfully. It's hard to get the full effect of how the seaglass pieces play with the entire design, both in piecing/applique and in quilting, until it is off. Right now I am just hoping it will look as envisioned, or somewhat close. FYI - I have stitched around over 100 of these appliques.
I'm trying for interesting fillers, with meaning and flow, but time will tell there too. I plan to go back over key motifs with a 30 or 40 wt poly thread with a nice sheen, to make them show up more.

Here's a small closeup of a paisley filler, learned in an online wholecloth class quilt recently. In a larger quantity, it looks pretty interesting.

Today's going to be a noisy day - my living room hardwood is being installed. It's crunch time here at home with the renovation. Getting very close to being finished. My customer quilts are piling up, and will be attacked hard in a couple days when Sea Glass comes off the frame.

Amazing. Stunning. (Did you do anything special to get the seaglass pieces to pop so well?)
