How about a teal turtle? This started out as a very precise block but the sewing got away from me and it turned into an experiment in free piecing. And because it's a turtle I even added some slow cloth when I appliqued the center circle by hand. The finished block (without the extra border to even it out) is roughly 5.5 inches by 11.5 inches. For more scrappy aqua and teal delights, visit the home base for the rainbow scrappy challenge.

  6. So sweet! Love him. Must say though, he looks more like a tortoise than a turtle to me.

  9. Sally -

    Are you inventing these designs? They are so cute. Crane, dogs, cats, turtles, mice!

    I'm inspired to add more animals to my Friday Block Party blocks - this time I'll use some blue...
