Turtle quilt




Here are the top and back of my quilt (BTW this is the first time I have ever posted a photo on the internet.) The color looks a little washed out, probably due to the artificial light.  The turtles do all look lined up in tidy, well-behaved rows, don't they?!! I will keep working on developing my quilting to be more liberated. To finish the quilt, I'm thinking I will use floss to hand quilt some lily pads or sea weed or whatever in the "open water."  I hope to finish while people are still looking at the 2008 summer class blog.

those turtles are so cute. next time I'm sure they'll be swimming all over the place! love the back - good place to experiment being wild.

Wow! These turtles are cool!!! The fabrics are really beautiful and unique. The two little ones in the middle make me smile! And what a fabulous striking back...it's a piece of art all itself! Congrats, on the finishing the top & back and posting them to the internet! Wahoo!
