What are you most proud of? The fun I had selecting the fabrics with friends and family, and my cousin for producing such a beautiful daughter! I learnt a lot about using colour and creating depth when I made this quilt.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you sew something similar to this, you need to be comfortable with advanced piecing and sewing curved seams, including some tricky S-seams around the flippers. A bendy ruler is useful for getting the large curves to be smooth. This quilt is my own design. I don't want people copying my work, so the pattern is not available, I'm afraid.

What size is this quilt , if you don't have the pattern. Then how much fabric did you use and how color did you add in?

36" x 41". I think I bought a yard cut of the graduated turquoise batik I used for the background, from SewBatik, and the rest was probably from odd quarter-metre cuts. I thought of the colour in this way: Sea background: graduated turquoise. Turtle: light green for the head and legs, and a mixture of red, orange, yellow, pink and green for the shell. Inner border and binding: yellow/orange. Outer border: Deeper blues and greens. Does that help? I'm not quite sure what you meant by "how colour did you add in", I'm afraid.

I would also love the pattern. Even if you designed it, we would love to see it for sale!
