Kay machine appliqued the turtles with their variety of specks, swirls and stripes, along with all the stars and other whatnot onto this great striped fabric. As if that wasn't character enough, the quilter, Linda, did a magnificent job of quilting it! Each element is treated specifically for effect, and the swirling look of water in the background fabric is perfect. If you look closely, you see that many Kaffe Fassett fabrics are used in this unique quilt. I love how the variety works together so perfectly for this quilt.
This picture shows the borders and the backing. Kay used a nice mix of batiks and Westminster fabrics. Here are a few more views and close-ups.
Today, I finished reading The Round House by Louise Erdrich. I am looking forward to our meeting tomorrow evening. Tomorrow after class, I will be going to Terry's to sew, which makes me glad I got the reading done today. I have a full day scheduled, don't I? Class, then sewing at Terry's, then book club. I have no idea what I will work on tomorrow while at Terry's. I am heading up to the sewing room now to figure it out.
Happy Quilting, Friends!
