So, some photos. I ended up quilting each of them a different way. First up is the one with the yellow border.
(apologies for the dodgy photography. For this I chose the beetle fabric for backing. I quilted it in an all over yellow stipple. Quite happy with the result - my stippling gets better every time I do it!
shell fabric. I stippled the solid triangles in a matching thread. This is my favourite. I think it's the most effective.
crab fabric. This was quilted with a beige/ mushroom thread. I took something from each square and quilted it on the whole nine patch. Great idea, didn't work quite as well as I imagined. The close up shows a bottle, see what I mean by it didn't work as well as I thought it would??
African print. Again, quilted with the beige/ mushroom thread, I quilted a star in each nine patch.
So, what do you think?? Will I finish by Friday?? Off to sew some ends in! (after I fold the washing!)
