I like Turtles

Posted on: November 9th, 2020 by Lorna McMahon
TURTLE crossing!!!
Turtles are cute…
But I also love the Dragonfly and Bulrushes blocks.
Also known as Cat Tails!!!
The backing coordinates with the background print from the front and is from the same collection. Unfortunately, I goofed during the basting process, and the backing is upside down.
Oh well. She is quilted now.
Using plain white thread, I quilted horizontal wavy lines from edge to edge with my walking foot.
Slow and Steady…
Wins the Race.

    You have given me an ear worm today for a song from long ago Turtles Chocolates commercials. “Ooo, I love turtles.”
