My kids have 3 turtles...2 of them are HUGE. LOL The shells are about 8 inches long.
Anyway Preston ( my youngest son) houses these turtles in a tank in his room ( which he shares with Carl). Preston has been asking me to make him a turtle wall hanging to have above the turtle tank...and I haven't had time. Plus I work from home so nothing can ever be a surprise as the kids are always with me.

Anyway, he was gone for the weekend and it was Mother's day so I took a few hours off and made this wallhanging really quick like...His favorite colors are green and blue....

They have red ear sliders..so that is why this turtle has a red wing by his eye.

I quilted it with a water and pebble design because that is what these turtles live in..

Thanks for looking!

I used HObbs polydown batting and quilted it on my INNOVA...freehand.

I'll bet he loved it1 It's really cute. Sometimes we do our best work when we just sit down and do it!
