Fernando the Turtle Block

I love turtles and I've been working on some animal block patterns using the flip and stitch method. I especially love the tortoises of the Galapagos Islands, so I came up with this guy that I called Fernando.

Here's my first test of the Fernando block. I think he came out pretty good!

The wavy lines came out great!

The thing I like most about this block is that it uses one solid piece for the shell so you can use a pretty print and keep it intact. I think the block was around 12". I'd check except I gave him to my mom! The funny part is that I finished the binding (by hand) on the bus during a field trip. Thankfully I didn't stab myself.

I'm hoping to whip up another Fernando soon and maybe even a whole quilt. We'll see!

Until later, happy sewing!
