Yellow pond-lily quilt based on Sherri Lynn Wood's Floating Squares score

Today I finished the main piecing of this improvised quilt, although I think that I will add some more darker grey pieces along the edges to even it up and for the perspective look of the edges of the pond.

I know that I want to do something quite creative with the quilting. I think that I will do representational shapes of pond-lily flowers and leaves, in yellow and green threads where appropriate, and then probably concentric circles, like ripples after a dropped stone in the water, on the water areas. Probably grey thread for the ripples.
