    I used a coloring page to make the design in the Q-Bot software. A friend wanted turtles on her quilt, so I played with the software then tested the design on a charity quilt. She liked it but stretched it out on her quilt so that the shells were not so high and rounded.

    Thank you everyone. Your comments are appreciated. I still have a lot to learn, but it sure beats meandering all the time, or having to mark the design on the quilt.

    Jem's Gem and Lori Sunshine--The Q-bot is a computer that attaches to the quilting machine (my sis's is a Pfaff Grandquilter) that sits on a frame. She also got the software to make your own designs; this is what I used to create the turtles. Check out mytwopals graduation quilt. She used the Q-bot as well.

    That is awesome! I have heard that qbot is better than the other one. That is really sharp!!! Oh the toys! Gotta love the toys!
    I love the turtle design - looks fantastic!

    Thank you craftydeb. The q-bot definitely is a long way from stitch in the ditch or meandering.

    What a really great idea--to quilt in animals. I love your quilt too! Both are eye catching.

    Just a minor correction....mytwopals is a HE, not a she.
