Storm at sea quilt

Well I was all set to baste this quilt today,  but there's a problem :( , there's a tiny shadow showing through from the coloured fabric, its going to need to be trimmed.
And I thought taking out the paper was the boring job lol!

Storm at sea quilt

The blocks are all pieced,  so now it's time to pull the paper out.
I'm still undecided if im going to add any borders, will definitely not be making appliqué blocks thou as I've run out of oakshott,  the fat eighths bundle wouldn't stretch that far :(
The quilt as it is measures 36 x 36 and there's more wastage when you paper piece and I had already used some of the bundle making up the William Morris bird block, so I can't complain.
I am definitely in love with oakshott cottons and plan to buy more in the future.

Wishing you some sewing good times!
