This one went very quickly as I only quilted in gold. I started with a wavy line from edge to edge, then echoed back along it. I traveled along the block edge, started the second line, and quilted up to the first seagull. Then I echoed around the seagull until I reached where I’d started, then echoed the wavy line back to the start. I worked my way down the right side of the quilt block, ending up in the bottom right corner.
I traveled along the bottom of the block and started working my way up the left edge, quilting wavy lines out to the seagulls and back to complete the cross-block waves. I wanted it to have a “sky” feeling, like looking up at the silhouettes of gulls against the setting sun. Quick and easy!
