It's been a long, long, long, long time since I've said this - I've got a finished quilt to show you!
I know it's only a baby quilt, but still a finished quilt is a finished quilt!
And I have really enjoyed making this one - it's full of so many of my favourite elements. And obviously having an excuse to head to the beach for photos is always good too.
I kept the fish really simple, no eyes even.
In fact all the applique is very simple.

|And a solitary seagull.|
I found a massive remnant of this ages ago in a Charity Shop. There was plenty for a quick quilt bag...
And probably a couple more quilts if I ever get round to making them.
It really has been so long since it last happened that I'd kind of forgotten how satisfying it is to actually finish a quilt! I think (hope!) it might spur me on a bit now to get to the finishing line with Maria's quilt too.
And in celebration of an actual finish I'm linking up lots too - with Confessions of a Fabric Addict and the wonderfully named link up 'Can I get a whoop, whoop!' (great blog name too, and a gorgeous stained glass window quilt there today), over at Quilt Matters who's hosting TGIFF, and with Finish it Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts.
So here's to finishing, whether it's quilts or anything else in life!
