Like a Herd of Turtles

The turtles have arrived! And they’re so darned cute I’ve got to share some photos with you all. The first is of the blocks in one layout option. They haven’t been sewn together yet and may not stay in this arrangement, but it’ll give you an idea of what we’ve got. I’ll be adding a few small turtle blocks and a border or two to expand it into the size it needs to be.

There’s a great variety of artists and methods used to create these turtles. Here’s one that’s appliqued and embroidered.

This gorgeous scene is painted onto the fabric.

The last block I’m showing you today is drawn. Look at all the textures the marker lines create!

I’ll post more updates as I go on this quilt as well as the turkeys’ two quilts.
