    I finally finshed this little quilt top up. The hand embrodery took me longer than I expected it to. But that's ok, it is a large crib size, I think they used to call them six year?? I wanted it to be on the long side anyway.

    I will put it aside for it's quilting in the stack I have started. Here is three pics of it.


    Sorry about the angle

    Now how cute it that? You do such lovely work! I'm kind of partial to the name Myrtle. That's what my dad calls me! You've done the "Myrtles" proud!

    Oh Thanks so much Chele! I try and do the best I know how to do so that I grow with each project. Your dad calls you myrtle?? That's cute! My dad used to call me muscles. (skinny kid) LoL!

    Thanks beachlady. I kind of like pink and green together.

    LoL littlehud ... Thanks, it is for my granddaughter. She is at the grade where they read myrtle turtle in school.

    Thanks ever so much sewjoyce. I took this apart three times and re-worked it. I got tired of trying to figure out how to set it. It made for a long day.

    amma ... I was really looking ot finish it. So glad I finally did! Thanks for you sweet comments.

    Not only do I love the turtles, but pink and green is one of my favorite combinations.

    Good Morning gcathie!
    Thanks so much for your comments. I value your opinion very much. I hope she takes good care of it. Kids these days don't know how much work this is. :roll:

    :oops: Sheesh ... Thanks justquilting! I honestly feel humbled when I look at some of the experianced quilter's work here on the quilting board. Each quilt I do, I try and make it the very best I know how to do. I try and stretch myself with new patterns occationally and it helps me to learn to design better.

    My neighbor gave me a design board, but, I haven't figured out where to hang it up yet. Like I said at the begining, I had to take this apart twice and add to it before it looked right to me.

    okay, so then she goes out and makes an heirloom and I have to say something!
    Good going! It may be because my children were especially messy, but I wouldn't ever let your creation do anything but show up on very, very, VERY special occasions.
    I commend you on your work. It took a lot of time and it shows.
    it is a source of delight to me to see pink and green working together so nicely, since neither is my first favorite colors ... you have almost changed my mind! LOL
