super catchy blog post name, right? but regardless, i'm back and ready to share more things! another baby quilt request came from my aunt in the middle of a major project (more on that coming soon!) and i just couldn't say no to getting one done in time. it was to be for a little girl, and the theme of the nursery was frogs and turtles. while wandering joann fabrics, i found this super cute turtle print but had NO clue what to put it with. bought a yard and a half and then headed home to check pinterest. nothing. then i remembered a collection of baby quilts posted on craftster by "mistress jennie" i commented on, and it was perfect. i followed her tutorial listed in her post, and came up with this simple, but super cute baby quilt!
i pulled different prints and colors from the turtle shells to make it more than just straight lines of solid colors. without the turtles in between, it looked very circus-esque for a while. ha!
the amount of fabric i bought for the turtles worked perfectly for this pattern, since it used just enough for the front, and left me a perfect sized piece for the back.
good job, quilt holding sister, aileen.
i found the perfect binding for this quilt. the fabric was off-white, and had little polka dots on it to tie in with the other fabrics having prints and the turtle shells.
i quilted it following the seam lines, since i didn't want to get too crazy all over with the prints that were already happening. i used a light yellow in order to have it coordinate but not be extremely obvious :)
