The Erin Quilts V

Turtle Pond  When Erin was a little girl I would let her pick out a couple fat quarters every time we went fabric shopping. Eventually her stash was big enough that I could make something. She was 8 when we started this quilt. She chose the pattern and picked out most of the shell combinations, we talked about busy prints and calm prints and boring prints and how they need to work together to show off each other in the best possible way. Sometimes two really pretty prints together ended up sticking their tongues out at each other. So Erin would try a fabric that was less flamboyant. She has a good eye for color and design. This was fused applique with satin stitch around each piece. I echo quilted the background and used a pile of green from my early stash. Savoring the mommy Erin time. --Ann--

I love the turtles and love hearing how the quilt came together with you and Erin working together. Good job!
