Default First of Two Tops Done

During the recent VQW, I had posted pics of my start on one of the two quilt tops my SIL asked me to make for two of her granddaughters for Christmas. She chose a couple of panels, one of cats and the other turtles, based on the girls' likes and we ordered them online. The quilts will be queen sized. I started with the cat quilt, but realized I needed a complimentary fabric, which I ordered online and haven't yet received.
When I received the turtle panel in the mail, I got started on that one and the top is now done. I'm off today to pick up a batting and some fireside fleece for backing. The girls live in Newfoundland, with cold winters and my SIL would like the quilts to be cozy and warm and fireside certainly does that. Here is a pic of what I put together with this panel. I had made a plan, and then had to totally revise it once the panel came because the colours weren't exactly what I imagined and a turtle fabric I bought didn't work at all with the panel. Now I have a yard of turtle fabric in my stash and no idea what I'll ever do with it . I will bind it with the dark blue that is used in some of the borders. This granddaughter's favourite colour is green so I hope she likes it.
Thanks for looking.

Great use of the tropical underwater panel, beautifully framed with batik fabrics. That young girl is in for a super surprise on Christmas.

It's beautiful!! Love the watery effect that batik blues and greens give. Glorious border you did also Don't worry, you'll find a use for the other turtle piece. Just needs time to grow on ya.

Pretty quilt. It actually looks like the turtles are swimming in a fish tank.
I'm sure the little girl will love it. Would the left over turtle fabric work for a dresser scarf for a hanging storage organizer? Of course you'd probably have to make a similar organizer for the other little girl.

That is magical, I am sure she will love it. Can’t you use the other fabric for the binding?
