WIP Wednesday - Surf Quilt

When we went to the craft and quilt fair a few weeks ago, my sisters-in-law and I bought a pattern from an Aussie Designer to make a  “Surf's Up” quilt for their brother and his family who live at the beach and are keen surfers.
We picked up a few FQ of fabrics while we were there to make some of the applique pieces but have mainly just used fabrics from our stash. S and L have both been hard at work making all of the appliqué blocks and sent them over to me on the weekend.
This is a communal effort between us so this week I have done the sashing and borders for the quilt : . 
  And now it is all basted and ready to quilt:) Linking to WIP Wednesday At Freshly Pieced:
