1,2,3, Under The Sea A Counting Quilt for Toddlers
This quilt was inspired by my grandson who loves to go to the aquarium. When he was 2 years old, he thought that anything more than one was two. I designed this quilt to help him learn to count. One sun, Two octopus, Three whales etc. I used the needle-turn method to applique the sea creatures. I tried to draw very simple shapes so they would be easy to applique. It went together remarkably fast. I just happened to have some bright sea shell fabric in my stash that worked really well for the border.
