SOME MORE SAMOAN GOODNESS

One of my friends asked if I would make a baby quilt out of Samoan fabric. She went and picked the fabrics. The yellow brown fabric (turtles) is my fabric, just thought it needed an extra punch!!!! This is the yellow brick road pattern but I added the turtles. It took me about 3 hours to design these turtles (I am not an artist)...but I drew them on tissue paper because that was all I had that was big enough for what I wanted. Then I transferred them to a large piece of construction paper (only had black) and then traced them on the fusible (had to use 4 sheets of fusible) and well...there you have it. I am really nervous, I don't know if she will like it or not????????



Then for an extra bonus....I made a matching tote. This tote has a small pocket in the big pocket for a cell phone. A pocket on the back and pockets all the way across one side in the inside.... I also quilted the bag so it would be sturdier...

I soooo love turtles. We have 5 in a tank and anything you can think of turtles. If she shouldn't "heart" it for some reason, send it to NC. It will be treasured. lol
