Design Wall Monday, May 12, 2014



This is the wall hanging from Newly Hatched pattern by Karen Brow.  I took a workshop with her and members of Sunshine Quilt Guild on Saturday to learn Karen's techniques.  There is a juvenile turtle to be done that will sit above and to the left of mama turtle.  I'm prepping the applique pieces right now.  I really enjoy Karen's workshop.  If you have a chance check out her patterns at Java House Quilts.  I'm hoping to have the juvenile done for Tuesday's monthly meeting where all the students will be sharing their project.  Anyone have an idea on a "K" name for my turtle project?


I know you want to see more, but it just can't be done...  Here's just a small porting of my Whisper Challenge project.  It's due at the June 10th meeting.  I'm anxious to see how my interpretation of the photograph everyone started with plays out.  There will be sharing after June 10th! 

This is Koliding Krosses.  I have all the pieces made.  Time for putting the blocks together and then the rows.  I'm right on track for an end of the month finish.

There is more to see today through the links at Patchwork Times.

Love your turtle. Cooter is a type of turtle, so Kooter is a possibility. : )

Love the turtle and those batiks. I'll have to and check out Karen's patterns. As for a K name .... there is a sea turtle know as Kemp's Ridley. That could be a start.

Mrs. Turtle is so cute. What a great selection of fabrics you choose to use. You sure know how to make one wonder what everyone is whispering about.????
Koliding Krosses is also very nice.

Your turtle is very cute. I'm terrible when it comes to naming quilts, so I'm no help there.
