...and play I did!
I got this pattern a few weeks ago and I have been anxious to try it out.
I saw it in the catalog at Pine Needle Quilt Shop in Lake Oswego Oregon and then
I some time back I saw Pam Kitty Morning working on one.
I thought is was to cute not to do! So here is the start of mine.
One block is 20" and you can either make six for a lap quilt or 15 for a monster size.
The pattern calls for 5/8 yd for each fabric used but I was getting away with 1/2 yd cuts. I had my fingers crossed because I don't have 5/8 yd cuts of much in my stash.
The pattern is called Victory Garden. It's by Busy Bee Quilt Designs.
But before I did that I made a small herd of turtles.
I just love these guys...
and although I am not one to do "fussy" things, I was getting a kick out of seeing how they each turned out.
Two of these guys/gals are now in the mail to my pincushion swap partner. I hope they arrive safe and sound... I included a little bit of turtle food to hold them over:) on their journey!
It seems that I spent the whole weekend with KarrieLyne at Freckled Whimsey... first making the turtles, which were for her and
then working on my Charm Pack Quilt Along that she is hosting.
We are almost on the final part, so I got all 25 of my blocks completed!
I loved working with these fabrics so much. That's why I picked another dozen of them
for my 200th post giveaway (along with the Lunch Bag book). It's not to late to enter!
I actually think I am about caught up! What an odd thing!?! No more swaps or anything due...
I must be missing something...
