Turtle of the Day - the Center Square

I had not originally planned for a turtle block in my Summer Sunshine Sister's Choice quilt, and I was working on doing 20 blocks to Lazy Sister Sue's 25. However, a day spent spring cleaning my studio/attic unearthed a bag of scraps left over from one of our first collaborative quilts, another Quiltville.com pattern we made for our nephew, who is now 8!

There was enough to nearly put together 5 more blocks, and a dip back into my stash produced a FQ of a turtle batik that LSS had given me (I think). Of course this had to take "center square" in Summer Sunshine.

There's a bit of a lot of old projects in this quilt- a nephew's quilt, my son's quilt from Aunt Sue, part of one of my son's pillowcases that LSS helped me find the fabric for, a crabby Lazy Girl Summer Tote we made for Mom, my first Summer Tote, Turtle Crossing and Trouble with Turtles just to name a few.

It will be nice to curl up under all these old - and new - memories! What could be warmer!?

You are so talented! I can't believe how you knock projects like this out so quickly. Can I be your sister? I can't wait to see it done.
