Remember the other 2 “farm quilts” I quilted for Claudia? She asked that I do one last one for her father. This one is smaller and I decided to change it up a bit to make it special for her dad.
She had some different colors, so I added a sun in the upper left-hand corner.
And, because her dad is the “parent” of the farm, I put a house in the lower right-hand corner of this farm quilt.
And, this farm has a dog, where the other 2 quilts do not.
Claudia has been on a roll this year with making quilts for Christmas presents. She asked me to quilt this Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle quilt for her 5-year-old grandson. I love the texture of the fabric and the colors she put together for this quilt!
But, what on earth do you quilt on a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle quilt? Looking back, if I had to do this all over again, I would not have quilted anything fancy at all in the center of this quilt. It gets lost in the fabric print and is hard to see. I quilted a scene of all 4 Ninja Turtles together showing off their weapons, but you can’t see it in any of the pictures.
However, if you look closely at the next few pictures, you can see that I quilted one of each of the turtles’ weapons in each of the outer blue borders.
You can barely see that I also stitched the names of each of the turtles in the purple borders, and I stitched hexagons to resemble a turtle shell in the green borders. I was trying to fill up space by putting the weapons in the largest borders, but I wish I had stitched the names in big block letters in the blue borders and made the weapons smaller and put them in the purple borders. Live and learn!
In this next picture, you can see the little orange cornerstone blocks. If you know anything about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, you know they love to eat pizza. So, I stitched pizza in those blocks.
I can only hope that Claudia’s grandson will be able to find all the hidden “pictures” in this quilt!
