If you look carefully, you'll see the name of the quilt in there.
I saw this done and just had to experiment on my own. Everything used is polyester: felt, crushed velvet, and wonder under, except for the cotton thread. That way I am able to burn away everything but the thread holding it together.
I've recently started working on my basic degree through the BYU BGS program in Creative Writing.

I looked for phrases or expressions that had the word 'blue' in them. I came across blue laws, and it just kind of took on a life of it's own from there. Call it the time of year, frame of mind, whatever- but this is where I ended up!

I created the turtle using a photograph that I printed onto tissue paper. After the tissue paper was sprayed with three layers of finishing spray, I crumpled it several times and then fused it to fabric. This along with the coral was then machine appliqued to the background. The crumpled tissue paper adds a very nice texture to the turtle.
