Baby Honu 's top is done!!

I have finally finished Baby Honu!  It has decreased in size by a few inches. My snail trail blocks were 7 1/2 " as told to do in pattern and the turtle block is cut at 8"; you do the math...  It didn't seem like it was going to add up to me and it didn't but I love it anyway.  The colors are just how I imagined them. Now on to sandwiching them together. The backing I bought when Regina and I went to Hobby Lobby in Webster. It works wonderfully with the top and now to configure binding. I will have to get a picture of the backing to show you. 
Regina and I each have this little turtle. We picked him up at Hobby Lobby also. I made mine into a magnet for the frig. He is saying "Hi Regina".  I shall name him Scatter.... does anyone remember the story from our HL venture? It is what we had to do to get away from the Sea gulls dive bombing us. Mainly me...  How I got out of there unscathed is news to me.
I also completed my charm tote.  This is a Northern Solitude tote to match my quilt (that I need to finish up). I am pondering what to enhance the heart with... dragonfly, turtle, buttons...

  1. LOL - and I shall call mine "Splatter" to remember that sound!!!

  2. I love the quilt and the bag.
    I'm still laughing over the seagulls. I wouldn't have been so lucky. I swear I go around with splat me written in bird language on my head.

    Love and hugs GIna xxx
