    Here are some pics of one of my favorite quilts. I found a southwest turtle design in one of my books, I used the shape of the turtle and designed different shell patterns for each. I had little bits of scrap fabric flung everywhere!

    That is one very gorgeous, creative quilt. You are an inspiration to all of us. Way to take a pattern and make it your own.
