Turtles for a baby quilt

According to the Life Balance Institute, turtles symbolize longevity, great age, and wisdom.  What more perfect animal to feature on a quilt to welcome a first grandchild!

I chose to quilt a bit less densely than usual, in order to assure that this special quilt remain soft and cuddly.  The turtles got 2 different shell treatments:

and the border featured waving fronds of seaweed:

    The pattern is so lovely. I am trying to find a free turtle pattern to use for a quilt.
