OHHHHHHH POOR LITTLE TURTLE

Looks like he has been in some kind of accident!!!!


No worries momma will fix it!!



Momma's can fix anything......



I saved all my "steam a seam" scraps from the snowman blocks.....I am so glad I did. I just pieced it on the little turtle. What is that saying "Waste not want not"....well....as I went to get some more "Steam a Seam" from my bookshelf, I noticed that I did not have much left.....Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh


I told you I use it like people use toilet paper.....so that is when the light bulb went off.......scraps I saved.....and yes.....it didn't take too long to put all those little pieces on there (some were really great corner pieces)....



My husband chose the color of the turtles....

By the way, don't forget about my niece's fat quarter special.....

Barb it looks great. Hubby loves turtles.I am thinking of making him something with turtles to hang at work. I too have been saving my steam a seam scraps. At $5.00 a package I do not have much choice.

Very cute turtle. And you are very efficient with your steam-a-seam scraps. I do want to share that I love this turtle design. I think you have another delightful design here {hint, hint, hint}.

And I did share insights on your niece's super sale on Facebook & Twitter. Great price!

Those tropical fabrics combine to look as if the turtles are actually in the water. Great job.

Cute little turtles. And good way to use up the bits of fusible. ;-)

Waste not, want not, right?

I love the turtle on the blue fabrics. It looks amazing. You'd think they are swimming in the water. Such a great effect. I love it.

Waste not want not is a very good practice and certainly saved you this time :0) I just love your turtle quilts.
