Turtle Quilt

And here is a quilt for a baby whose parents are mad about turtles and turtle conservation. When I spotted the navy turtle print fabric, I bought it right away, even though baby turtle was still a wee embryo at the time. I decided, for a change, to go for a bright, bold palette, and tried a new pattern. From my collection (aka addict's hoard) of fabrics I found a yellow, red and turquoise prints to complement the turtles, all with small plain-ish repeat patterns so as not to take away from the turtle detail. And for a pop of irregularity, the forest print white fabric. Often upon quilt completion, I consider keeping the quilt for myself. So I need to pack it up and send it ASAP before I change my mind.
