Next the THANK YOU'S:
Thank you to Regina who gave us the beautiful bowl pattern
that I started with.
A BIG WHOOT! WHOOT! to REGINA!
I had FUN with this pattern, maybe a little too much.
Sometimes a girl's gotta do what they gotta do. And I had to do it before my head expoded!!
I wrote this post before my project was complete.... at the moment it is still in about 35 pieces or more and I am allowing myself till midnight to finish said project. And I apologize beforehand, pictures quality
may not be the best, or even good....my room is not well lit.
SOOOO, hopefully the picture gets inserted below before that time. I haven't tried it from my phone before.
Next a big Thank You to Madame Samm, Events Coordinator,Great Keeper of the blog hops of SEW WE QUILT for organizing all the hops and providing a place for non-bloggers to play! This is this first time I have jumped into one of your blog hops as a participant. I had seen quite a few, okay lots and lots of blurbs, shout outs and posts about them here and there and visited quite a few hops lately and when I noticed the one about the bowls I thought why not..........I should have checked into this a little deeper before jumping into the fray, imagine my surprise when I found out it was paper pieced.......oh my, that is not my favorite thing to do!! But I had had committed myself to your hop, and so this is my best attempt at Regina's paper piecing., bown up in all sizes But keep in mind I had fun and Thank you!!
Lastly I want to thank Carol of Just Let Me Sew, Cheerleader, Event Supervisor, coordinator of the crazy quilters!!! Oh SEW Great Carol, whom I have conversed with frequently and laughed heartily with, Thank you for your support and for putting up with my zaniness!!
I am dedicating my stack to you......
I started with a few and they looked so lonely, ..... it kind of bothered me, I had to think about it. What would make it work where I wanted it to hang...... I wanted big, and bold.
But first I had a turtle to figure out so I ignored them while they hung there,
so lonely and small.
This is what it was looking at.........
But, here it is.
A Weeks' Worth in a Day..... or Two Bowls!

I apologize for the WET upper and lower corners, there was blue marking pen from squaring it up, It was midnight and I did not have a hair dryer.
bwhahahahaha Carol, I can hear you laughing now.
I know I'm crazy, always have been always will be. But that aside, This was fun.
I 'm glad I jumped on board and will probably do it again one of these days!!
Here is a shot of the middle, is a wet corner not a shadow.
and one for STITCHERS
for any of you who are interested in Free Motion Quilting.. stop here first, IF NOT, jump to next paragraph........I do not do FMQ but designed a turtle anyway. I needed it and could not find a " cute" one, only realistic looking ones....... SO I am giving away my FMQ continuous line turtle I worked on so hard that I think part of my left brain/right brain thing had a small skirmish, but at last one side finally won because I got thing on paper..........I tell you, my hat is off to you free motion quilters.........It took me forever and a day to figure out how to draw a continuous line turtle for a baby quilt.
But it is done & stored on google docs, and am sharing it with you.
It is for your use on your own quilts or quilts you do for others. Just do not sell the pattern, I gave it you free, pass it around free to your friends with credit back to me please. My favorite quilter, Claire, is going to do the turtle quilting on a baby quilt I made for my daughter's best friend with this turtle, the MOM2B will be thrilled! And I am glad to not have to have quilted it!!! LOL! There's a link to google docs below the picture.
