Probably one of the cutest Heather Bailey patterns of all time.  This precious project combines some of life's finest pleasures...felt flowers, Nicey Jane fabric, polka dots, the color turquoise, and TURTLES.

Am I the only one who think that turtles look like old men?  Real turtles, that is.  Not the ones sporting felt flowers.

Turtles should be well fed.  So much so that they either balance on their bulging bellies or tip over onto their noses, making them talented turtles who know tricks.

These particular turtles were so terrific that I couldn't stop at just one.

One for me, and one for a friend.

Because life is all about good friends.

Confession.....I had always longingly looked upon the fine, glass headed quilting pins at my local quilt shop.  The kind you need to take out a second mortgage to purchase.

Once I made Henrietta I had a reason to buy some.

Because they matched my turtle.

I sent my spare off to my friend, who loved her Henrietta as much as I love mine.

And that, my friends, is my turtle tale.


  1. They are adorable! You will love your new pins too! :)

  2. Hi! Greetings from Finland! The turtles are so fantatic! I love them! It's so nice to find other quilters from other countries! :)
