Yesterday, hubby and I went on a field trip by tour bus up to Jacksonville for the "2012 Quilt Fest."

We traveled with all of the other ladies that are in his weekly Quilting Social group from JoAnn's Craft Store.

It was such fun and saw so many gorgeous quilts at the Prime F. Osborn III Convention Center.

It is a three day event that will end today.

The first quilt I saw was this turtle quilt and was a fave.... naturally :)

Up From The Depths

This is an original design by Sue Turnquist in Tifton, Georgia.

The sea turtle is machine applique.

The tropical fish are thread painted and appliqued to the machine pieced background.

The entire piece is machine quilted.
