Ocean Crystals?

This is Wendy.  Like Tonya, I was really attracted to the crystal quality of the Ocean Waves quilt.  I've been working on mine as a L&E project.  But, I finally have one (wave? crystal?) done.  I never worry much about seams matching.  And I didn't pick through my colors.  What I grabbed is what went on.  The only thing I was picky about was the turn of the second HST unit.  When it's all put together, I want a raised effect to the center of these units.  I've only trimmed off the jagged bits, not really trimmed to size until  I get the rest done and can fit them together. 

I'll go with a navy background, I think.  With burgandy or black letters in a colored border.  Oh, this is going to be a table runner.  At least that's the plan.
