Do These Look Like Turtles?
I found a quilt pattern while going through boxes of old stuff from the great garage clean out. Mostly I found embroidery and counted cross stitch patterns, but there was this one quilt pattern in among all the embroidery stuff. It's called Turtle Travels and is by The City Stitcher. These are the shells of the turtles. Fabric will be appliqued in the center and then the resulting piece will be reverse appliqued into the background. Heads, tails, and legs will also be appliqued. I am okay with the fabric choices, except for the center left one. It looks fine up close and personal but there is clearly not enough contrast. There are eight turtles needed for the quilt, leaving me three more to make if I choose to replace the low contrast one. This is straightforward relatively easy paper piecing and with any luck , I may be able to finish them this evening.
