The Turtle Quilt - part three

Well, the wonderful and talented Granma has been busy! All the blocks are done, all 20 of them! Let's see, 9 pieces per block x 20 blocks -- Whew! That is a lot of pieces!

Granma said she was very pleased! The most amazing Grandson has not seen them yet -- LOL He would be very excited! So tonite, the Granma put them up on the design wall and this is what she sawDSC01998 How Fun!! Of course the color on this is lousy,,, but Granma said to post it anyway. It shouldn't take long to put them all together... there is an inner border of about 2 inchesin an orange and then the same blue as the background will be the borders. HHMM wonder if a small blue inner border and then the orange border would be a good thing. Might set the turtle blocks off very well...

Well, the wonderful and talented Granma is a big Dancing With The Stars fan so time to go!

It's fabulous. If grandson doesn't like it ( and I bet he will ) just send it my way.

I love the turtles!! Now are you going to call this quilt Donatello? Leonardo? or ??? (Surely being a Grandma, you get my attempt at a joke).

I love the turtle quilt - and the story of its birth! I'm sure the amazing Grandson will have a huge hug for the wonderful and talented Granma when he sees it!
