HeartStrings is doing a project with 3 yard quilts – what a great way to make quick quilts for donation and use up some yardage. I’ve got a couple of 3 yard books from Fabric Cafe but they’re at Big Canoe so I just decided I’d make 8 inch finished blocks with a 4 inch finished border for this one.

I’ve had this turtle fabric forever so it felt good to finally use it but I have a yard left over so it will eventually show up in another quilt or maybe on a back.


  1. Congrats on using up a bit of deep stash, Mary!! I’m not sure if I would want to save the turtle fabric for another quilt or go ahead and use it up as a backing for this quilt. It sure is cute!
