“Thepattern is Turtle Trails by Annette Ornelas. It is made with batiks. It is free motion quilted in a ripple water pattern with the border in akelp pattern. The backing is a batik with sea turtles in kelp and other seaweed. It was made for the baby of a marine biologist. I did not add as many borders to the pattern to keep the size down. This is aclose-up of a few of the turtles.” — Susan Cupp

“Quilt for our future grandchild. We won’t know the sex until he/she is born, so it had to be gender-neutral!” — Patricia Ogden
“Thisis a “Hobo Quilt” I finished. Hand embroidered above each block what the secret language each design stood for. Tied off at each corner of each block. On the back for a label I made an engine and train car to put the name and information of the quilt and date. Used a flannel backing to finish. Fun quilt to make and very interesting.” — Marilyn Cooper
