Tea pot; turtles; tech

Yikes, what happened to my photo? I guess using my friend's photoshop on their computer wasn't the way to go. Thanks so much for your comments on my tea cups/tea pot wall hanging. I added a couple things - a really cute vintage button in the center of the flower, plus I re-worked the heart on the tea pot a little and I added a little more steam coming out of the teapot's spout, going up into the border. I'll try to post another picture but it might be awhile. I'm thinking about my turtle quilt now for the 2008 class. I'm wondering... if the turtles are scrappy and wonky, is it too tame to have one background fabric to be the swamp? Or should I push my self to be really wonky and have a riot of backgrounds - I think that's what I really want to do. Meanwhile I have to work out my tech problem. Our computer at home has been sitting for over two years, unusable. I'm thinking we're going to have to break down and do something about it SOON if I'm really going to participate in this class! This week I have my visitors from Norway, and I'm happy to have a little quilt to give to Grete.

Try the riot of backgrounds! I had to push myself on that score, too, and was happy I did.

My preference is a pieced background too - even if there are only subtle differences in the fabric.

I don't necessarily think it's boring to just use one background fabric. sometimes that can help bring it all together. on the other hand, do push yourself in the direction you want to go. try a few and then see how you like them. hope you get your computer woes sorted out soon.
