I quilted this sample on a double layer of fleece. I really wanted to practice this month's ideas more, but had to be extra nice to my wrist as it's been hurting lately.
Looking forward to next month's challenge!!

Auditioning borders now. The squares finish at 2". I have to admit, I just finger pinned. It went pretty well, I think.
Leaning toward the red border but I like the idea of the blue border with a red binding. The back will be scrappy leftovers I think. I also need to decide how to quilt it, as I do not SITD!
Oh, and Mario looks pretty pasty here but his color is a little pinker in real life.

I had already quilted and bound it, I just hadn't buried all the tails and added a label. I found out 24 hours ago that my MIL was going to be meeting up with my Sis-in-law this weekend (who lives in NM) and so I quickly finished the quilt so she could take it with her. Nothing better than hand delivery!
Tropical Turtles. This shows the full design, but you need to look at the other photo for a better idea of the richness of the colors :)
Made for our niece, Hannah. The appliqued turtles are my own design. The inspiration for the quilt was www.hoffmanfabrics.com/EDocs/Site10/A%20Is%20For%20Alliga...

The top corners are just pinned back and the other fabric is pinned behind it to see how it would look if I changed out the corners. The lower half of the photo shows what the border really looks like, and I'm not 100% happy with it at the moment (which is why I'm playing around with the top)
