Fishy cot quilt

I cheated a few weeks ago and started this new cot quilt.  I am intent on using up some of the wadding ends in my cupboard as well as the cot panels lurking in the stash - well thats my excuse for not working on UFO's!  I figured (another excuse) was this would be a good way to improve practise my FMQ as well as free up some storage space.
I tried to do yellow, green, yellow border, but it looked naff, so I removed one yellow and made the four patch cornerstones.  I then stitched in the ditch including those that didn't exist - cos its a panel!  Then I quilted some fish in the blue border.
 I don't think they turned out too bad, I stippled squiggly lines in between fish to look like water.  Not sure what the rest of the quilt will be quilted with, but leaning towards a water theme of some sort.
Happy quilting, Sue.
