This is a block I designed to use in a quilt for a friend's niece. She loves turtles and lizards! But I couldn't find any turtle blocks that I really liked. So this is what I came up with in my lunch hour, and it was perfect! This pattern fits a 12" square block, and can be appliqued in any method you prefer (extra seam allowance is not included so if you plan to turn the edges, add 1/4 inch around each piece.) NOTE: The gecko blocks in the second picture are NOT my design. That was a block I got from www.fatcatpatterns.com. If you're interested in that block, you can try there!
