TURTLE TRANQUILITY PATTERN

I have finally finished the turtles patterns I have been working on....and just wanted to show you.

As you can see from this and the Starfish pattern, I have been very busy.

This pattern includes 3 different sized turtles. One thing I can say about this big turtle quilt and the octopus quilt is when you order these patterns they come in full size, no having to go and get them copied at a larger size. I just can't stand it when I have all the fabrics for a pattern only to find out I have to increase the pattern...so frustrating.

This pattern is very versitile....


You can make towels, pot holders (yes, the turtle is not centered). Even table runners....I was going to have one for you but just not motivated enough.....



My Friend Krista came over today and she showed me this quilt that she finished. She is so fun and so talented....a quick study as well.

I did get my Go dies in and can't wait to tell you about them but that is for another post...don't want to bore you too much.....
Had a great day, truly great day....it is having the company of good friends that enriches my life and good blogging friends with great blogs....yes, I don't think I could have made it these 3 years if I had not been blogging and found all of you and your creativity. Thanks.

  13. What an amazing person you are! Here you try to convince us that you are just sitting around looking hot in your underware and here you are sneaking in some fantastic quilt designs. Those turtles are wonderful! You are very clever.

  24. I love your turtles Barb- Is it all applique ? raw edge applique that is fused? They look terrific and I love your batik fabrics.
    Glad your Go dies have arrived so now you really can go...
    Thanks for the links for some of the giveaways.
