This listing is for a quilt pattern and instructions for the Honu (Hawaiian for Sea Turtle). It also includes a list of required fabric yardage that you need to supply. You will be able to download the three files associated with this pattern online as soon as you purchase the listing. Note, the cover sheet is a .JPEG file for best photo quality. You (or your print shop) will need to be able to open a .PDF file for the other two to be printed. The pattern needs to be printed on an 11" x 17" sheet either on your printer or at a local printer. The cover sheet and supply list can be printed on 8.5" x 11" sheets. If you would rather have a paper copy mailed to you, please purchase the other Sea Turtle pattern listing.

The directions call for needle-turn applique' (pieced hand quilting), but you can also use fusing to iron the fabric in place and machine stitch edges if you prefer. This art pattern by Ann Jensen is designed to have a finished measurement of 18" x 18". You can make a pillow, place mat, table runner, towel applique, or wall hanging. You can reduce the pattern at a print shop and make a tote bag, apron, etc. You can also enlarge it to make a baby quilt or up to 42" x 42" quilt, etc. The ideas are unlimited!

This pattern calls for five (5) different watercolor batik fabrics. Of course, you can use any type of fabric in your design. You don't have to use batiks, but they add a very tropical feel to your creation! The pattern includes directions for finishing the back side if you are making a pillowcase. This picture shows the inner quilt design, but there is also a 4" border fabric that is to be sewn around the edges to make it a finished size of 18" x 18". You can have fun choosing different fabrics and creating very different looks. You are sure to be pleased with your finished pictorial quilt!!

You may purchase this for personal use or to make items to sell, but you may not reproduce the copyrighted pattern in any way for someone else. Please refer them to my shop if they would like to make something with this design. Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have. Thank you so much, and happy sewing & quilting!
