The quilting I had in mind for Baby Honu is quite a stretch for my current level of ability. At the quilt show I bought the queen size Supreme Slider which is supposed to help with free motion quilting and this was my first opportunity to break that out. The pebble quilting in the turtle shells went fairly well on my test piece but it was a whole ‘nother kettle of fish on the actual quilt. I did improve and found that starting my pebble in the center of the space to be filled worked best for me. I had planned to do a little echo quilting around the outside of the turtles but I was having some serious tension issues or something as my bobbin thread kept snagging. I left it at a single echo line around each turtle. This quilt has a little surprise when you turn the lights out. When I saw this glow in the dark thread at the show I just had to get some.
