This mesmerisingly realistic cotton has been produced by Michael Miller Fabrics. Diving deep into the heart of a peaceful underwater paradise, this cotton fabric lets you escape into a beautiful ocean world where turtles play.

This pattern has a real sense of serenity. The turtles in the foreground are so intricately detailed that you feel like you can reach out and touch them as they glide gracefully past. Whereas those in the background seem to be gently drifting into the distance.

Between these tranquil turtles, you’ll find lush green seaweed swaying with the currents, their vibrant hues adding a burst of colour that complements the turtles’ own shades. While the deep aqua blues of the sea help these lively greens catch the eye. Their curves and rippling strands add layers of depth and movement to this already stunning scene.

With a width of approximately 110cm (43 inches), “Wading Turtles” is available by the metre (39 ⅓ inches) or half a metre (19 ½ inches). Multiple quantities will be sent as a continuous length. If you’re working on smaller, more intricate projects, you can choose the fat quarter option which measures approximately 55cm x 50cm (21 ½ x 19 ½ inches).

This fabric is ideal for a wide range of sewing projects, but we think that this fabric would be especially fun to make an ocean-inspired octagon quilt block, marine-themed meditation cushion, or even a tote bag that you’ll be turtle-y in love with.

So, if your next sewing project would look perfect with a touch of turtles or a splash of oceanic serenity, then we hope that “Wading Turtles” will help you shell-ebrate your creativity, and help you make something that’ll have you swimming in compliments!
