I'm so excited about my little turtles. I have them all stitched up.
Not in the picture - of course I don't have picture with them all done.
I went yesterday and bought the fabric for the wave blocks.
I have not been fabric shopping in sooooo long.
I've been so good about not buying fabric, that I bought all of these without a sale!
Oh dear - and I didn't even care.
What started this quilt was I saw Lisa Boyer on TV sewing these turtles (years ago - I mean years and years ago.) I thought it looked like so much fun. Well fast forward a hundred years - er well not quite that many years and I found her pattern in a old quilt magazine at the library. Cool right. So fast forward a couple more years (maybe a decade?) and we get to me making her turtles. Only I stuffed them. (What a good idea Linda ! Thank you. I thought so too.)
And today I printed of the foundation paper for paper piecing the waves.
I has done paper piecing with 3 pieces - so this shouldn't be much harder.
Well, I'm looking forward to sewing.
