    My father is a scuba diver and fell in love with sea turtles. . . .I then went on a search for a sea turtle applique pattern, did not find one that met what I had in mind, so I took a class from Janet Fogg and then created this quilt. I named him "dudley" as I was working on him. . .I am now working on "Leo" from my studies in revelations. . . .One of the many projects I have working on and plan to continue to work on once my neck and shoulders heal. . . .
