Good Morning Turtles 3 of 3

After quilting the top....I cut out the top and batting from the center of the flower and turtle shapes.

I glued the flowers and turtles into the shapes. Then, I painted the space between that had some batting showing through.

I loved the extra textures created in this way.

Here is the finished small quilt. The marbled fabric provides a wonderful grass-like place in which the flowers can grow and the turtles can travel. I used a variegated cotton thread for the quilting.
