Awesome Ocean, Tony the Turtle

 This week, I finished all of my sea turtles.  All eight of them are named Tony!  I thought it would take forever, with his patchwork shell but I finished each one in about 30 minutes.  That doesn't include cutting though.

Again, I love choosing the colors and the prints :)

I still haven't gotten around to building a design wall, so I haven't laid all my sea creatures out in the order that they go in the quilt.

I only have two more fish to sew (eight of each color scheme), and then I'll start putting my little animal blocks together.  

I'm working on a secret project for the Fat Quarter Shop which I will post about next week.  It's a free pattern that they will be offering, so stay tuned!


  1. I love your cute turtles. I can well imagine the time it took with all the patchwork for the shells. So many cute blocks being added to my 'someday' to-do list :). Looking forward to seeing the new pattern FQS has up their sleeve - and to your sewing of it.

  2. Oh those are sooo cute Grammy!!!!! I’m so excited to see the finished quilt ­čśâ
