New quilt in process

I am working to get a new quilt finished in time for the Denman Island Studio Art Tour.
It is based on my concept of Sandy Island, known locally as Tree Island.

Arial view of Tree Island, just north of Denman Island.
The central motif of the quilt has been free motion quilted.

The narrow bands around the central motif have been quilted with seaweed patterns.
