Hi Barb, Your turtle quilt has such pretty colors, it must be the aqua cos I especially love the colors in the YBR pieces also. Looks like you have really been busy. Your other YBR quilt looks so springy! I did a little sewing today but then had to see my grandbaby for a little hugging time. Can't believe he is 7 months already. Have a good weekend.

You've been busy! Love the colors in your pillowcases! And your turtle blocks and octopus!

Is there anything better than the Yellow Brick Road pattern? No matter what fabrics you use, it ends up looking great!

Gene Black said...

I love the turtle applique blocks. I may have to try designing my own turtle. After doing the rose applique, I am thinking I might like doing a bit more applique.

Crispy said...

I love, love, love that octopus! It looks like maybe you have the edges pressed under? Would you mind sharing how you have prepped it? I love your blog, by the way. :)

It blows me away at how much you can accomplish. I do not have a long enough attention span!

You get so much accomplished - it's wonderful. I really like the turtles - colors and pattern. I'm not very good at applique yet. Your octipie is so cute.
