"Ocean Currents" ready to quilt

I finished piecing and joining the 3 panels that make up Ocean Currents quilt. It has been sandwiched with a Hobbs wool batting, and pin basted. Now I am trying to decide if I should hand quilt it with perle´ cotton, or machine quilt. Hand quilting will take longer, but is easier on my neck and shoulders.

I have started another version of Sea View, this time with an applique´d tree shape rather than embroidery. I think that I will do a series of this image.

Applique´ ready for needle turn.
