Sea Turtles

This all-batik quilt was huge, built for a California kingsize bed. It was 112 inches wide and 108 inches top to bottom. I used 3 different battings. I put Warm and White on the bottom.

Then I windowed in a piece of Soft & Bright inside the inner border. I used some QD puff trapunto on the two big turtles and the orange fish. I also used Jodi Beamish Waterworld as filler inside the turtle area. Michelle Wyman’s Simply Seashells seemed like the perfect complement ot he turtles so that is what I put in the 20” borders.

I used PermaCore Brazilian Blue thread top and bobbin.

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
