Turtle Time Handmade Quilt Throw

Several turtles were crossing Bluebird Lane this weekend, reminding me of this charming new Turtle Time Handmade Quilt Throw and Quilted Wall Hanging.

This brand new, imported handmade quilt has nice applique turtles and embroidered details in each one of the quilt blocks, each one telling a unique story.

During the 1980s, turtles were on Missouri Department of Conservation's advisory list, which brought public attention to their plight as they crossed roads and highways. Today it's a more common sight to see people stopping to help a turtle across the road, although these applique turtles seem to be taking care of themselves pretty well.

These are whimsical turtle scenes bound to bring a smile to anyone who loves turtles. As one of those people, I know I would enjoy getting this turtle quilt as a gift.

And one of my favorite details include the small applique turtles in tennis shoes running around the dark grey solid cotton border, so cute!
