Trying to figure out the picture part of blogging. I hope this works. This is a picture of the first quilt I ever made. I made it in 1974 for Bill for Christmas. I used some factory scraps that someone had given my mother. Those are the multicolor parts of the turtles. I think I had something made from the copper color face and tails. The white was an old sheet. We used it for years and years and eventually the old sheet fell apart so I took the turtles off and appliqued them onto some white flannel, changed the setting, added the blue/gold sashing and requilted it in 2004. Bill still likes it but it is really heavy now because of the layers and the flannel.
