I just looked it up. A grouping of turtles is called a "Bale" So, here's my "Bale". Officer Tori took a trip to Hawaii, and brought me back fabric! This is made from 4 of the same turtle panels, all stitched together. Surely was fun to play with the quilting. An attempt at fast "waves" in the outer border, then I just echoed some of the designs in the fabric itself. I think my favorite is the narrow striping behind the flowers and turtles below. I had the perfect size of wool batting leftover, so that gives the quilt a lot of loft, and the dense quilting lets the un-quilted areas shine.
I dropped this one off at East Precinct yesterday with a note for Officer Tori. This one was finished near Father's Day, in honor of her dad, and mine. Thanks Dad.
