My son asked me to make him a quilt with a turtle on it.  I drew the turtle myself, and  appliqued it onto the center square by hand.  Then I spent four days from morning to night cutting and sewing strips around the 8-1/2 inch squares that were cut from a sea turtle-themed batik I ordered online from a quilt shop in Hawaii.

It's lovely! The batik turtles are great too! I like how the double borders really set them off!
