Coral Reef quilted

I finished up the quilting and binding on Coral Reef.  I used a small stippling in all the water--with a few bubbles--and  outline stitched the main elements.  There's a lot of texture in this now and dimension on some of the large fish and sea shell at the bottom.  I found just enough scraps for the binding that had  the turquoise blue of the water in it. 
I woke up Saturday with an inspiration for the theme project in the art quilt series for innovative piecing.  A good night's sleep does wonders!  I plan on using inset strips and curved piecing on it.  Now off to find the right greens for the fields and fabric for the rocks.
