Sea Turtle Love on Hilton Head Island

Sea Turtle Love on Hilton Head Island, 64 x 82 inches, by O.V. Brantley, 2011.

This is the time of year when my thoughts turn to vacation. Last year basketball intervened and prevented us from taking a spring break cruise. Instead we spent a few days on Hilton Head Island.

Upon checking in, we were sternly lectured about our responsibility to protect the sea turtles. It was mating season for the sea turtles so the humans were forbidden to have lights on in the condos after 10 p.m. Failure to obey would result in a fine of $1062.00 per offense.

Of course, worrying about the love life of sea turtles inspired a quilt.  I named it Sea Turtle Love on Hilton Head Island. The contrasting fabric is actually a turtle batik, but once I cut it into squares,  the turtles disappeared. There are turtles on the back of the quilt, however.

This quilt will always be a reminder for me not to get in the way of love! For more information on sea turtles visit
