Hello, welcome to my blog. I'm still not sure what I will be featuring in this blog. I know it will be about quilting, but I might throw in the latest book I'm reading on my Kindle. So come along a follow me through my world of quilting and other stuff.

RW&B-Security Guard For the Give Away

The Red, White & Blue Security Guard for the give-away, has finally got here all the way from Malawi.  As he crawled his way through the jungles of Africa to accompany some lucky winners fabric to destinations unknown at this time.
I  wonder if he stopped off for a beer, or something since I see he has had some kind of plastic surgery done on his underside.
He looks like, he will be more useful at the beach or a party with his usefulness for opening bottles.  He is a nameless Guard and waiting for when he gets to his destination where his new owner will name him.

Look at him inspecting the great blocks that I did, checking them out for any mistakes that I might have overlooked (like his opinion matters). 

 He is already on the job to make sure I will not misplace the prize and that no sticky finger quilter tries to take off with his charge.

I am hoping that he finds a loving home, since he will be leaving all of his sisters, brothers and assorted kins with me (who might some day become security guards to their own give-away one day).
For those of you who do not know me, I am a collector of turtles and co-workers that travel all overseas from West, South, East and Central Africa will always bring me a turtle for the great job I do in getting their travel in and them off the tarmac. 

This is also reason for my name of fame – THE SLOW QUILTER. 

This is just a small look at my collection which I will feature sometime later.
So for those of you who are following me and left comments to the RW&B blog hop, you could be the home he goes to on July 22nd.

Good Luck
The Slow Quilter


  1. Well, turtle=slow quilter, so got it. Love playing word games. Also you are the first turtle collector I know. Are you sure there are not any tortoises infiltrating that gang of yours?
    Glad the batik is covered.

  2. Cute! Love the little turtles. You make me want to start quilting :)

  3. absolutely love turtles and fabric too!

  4. I always wondered why your blog was called the slow quilter. It looks like a great collection. I look forward to seeing more pictures of your gang.
