I have received lots of requests for a garden turtle to join the other Petal + Stem critters! I gave it a lot of thought but it just wasn’t working in the 6” x 6” format to fit with the others. I decided to make it into a 6” x 12” block which still mixes and matches easily with the others in the book, although this horizontal rectangle is technically a new format. I think it was a great solution!
It looks particularly terrific with another grass block in front so that the grass pieces are continuous. That’s how it is pictured above.
You can sew a natural looking turtle in “turtle-like” colors or be a little whimsical and have fun with the shell color like I did here.
I hope you have lots of fun with this turtle!
