From my Sketchbook: Ocean Paradise

All things come to those who wait...even quilt blocks. My Mock Turtle - which has long been a favourite in the shop - finally has its own quilt in the very special 100th (!!!) issue of Love Patchwork & Quilting. And meet the mini Mock Turtle, a.k.a. the Hatchling, which might, quite possibly, steal the show.

This quilt finds our turtles on a tropical beach, made with Heather Ross's bright Malibu prints for Windham Fabrics (bought here) and some sunny Liberty Betsy lawns (find them here), all bathing in a warm sea of Moda Bella Solid in Breeze. I rounded out the prints with some sherbet coloured gingham from Heather's older collection, Trixie, which I found amongst other treasures at Celtic Fusion Fabrics.
