A cable design made with double parallel lines fills in the tan ellipses formed when the blocks are sewn side by side. Partial cables surround the outer edge of the last row of pieced blocks. The tan scalloped edge has single line echo quilting following the design of the shape. Four straight lines with ellipses on the ends radiate from center into the large light blue diamonds. Triangles with curved sides are quilted from center into the triangles made with blue, orange and white diamonds. A continuous shape made with single lines echoes the ellipses on straight lines and triangles with curved sides. Shadow outline quilting and quilting in-the-ditch have been used. Stitches are small size and even.
