Edited to add: Blocks due January 20th, 2016. After that I’ll make do with what I have and get this project finished. Thanks!
I’ve got three more #getyourquiltywishesgranted envelopes ready to mail and four that are waiting for me to buy stamps. In light of all the giving going on I thought I’d take this opportunity to ask for more help finishing a quilt.
What I’d love to have is more tree blocks for the final border of the turtles’ quilt. I still need 75 more to make it all the way. Will you help? There’s a block tutorial here for the easy 8″ x 11.5″ pieced blocks. If you’re sending some my way please email me for the address mrs.megan.null at gmail dot com.
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.
