Tastes Like Chicken

The turtle quilt is finished (probably).  There might me room to do a couple more things at a later date after I've lived with it for a while.
Have you heard the expression "tastes like chicken" when someone talks about eating turtle meat?  I love turtles and would never eat one, but it doesn't keep me from giving a whimsical quilt a silly name!  Look closely, what's that following our turtle friend?  A snake in the grass!  It's made from a key chain.  The turtle shell is decorated with plastic bread fasteners.  Here's a close-up of the key butterflies:
What's next?  I had an idea last night that led to designing a pieced pattern this morning.  That will be a coming attraction.  I have a secret SHOP HOP quilt that will be revealed on the first day of our local shop hop (Feb. 2).  I also have a secret project that is part of an art quilt challenge and it will be ready for public viewing on the first weekend in March.  Stay tuned....

So cute!!! The key butterflies are very creative. And the bread ties turned out great for his shell!
