    I have not posted in awhile. In between working FT and getting our home ready to sell I have been working on a baby quilt. The pattern is called Turtle party buy Elisa Wilson. Here is the top minus borders. I'm not quite sure how I feel about it.

    Thank you . I am debating on using Green in the border as well or doing something totally off like pink to make it pop. What do you think?

    I love it...but I love turtles. I find it funny that it has 12 turtles. Just a few months ago I had 12 of them. Real ones.

    I think a contrasting boarder is what it needs. Love the greens!

    I would use one of the greens for the border. Lay the piece on different fabrics and see what appeals to you. Try the pink too.

    I made this quilt for my grandson. Lots of fun to make. I was lucky enough to find some mottled green fabric for the background that looked like water turtles would be swimming in. You did a great job.

    Looking at this quilt reminds me of the turtle swimming scene in "Nemo",and it was so grand and great to see. Lovely use of the spectrum of greens and love the placement.
