"Hidden Treasures" art quilt challenge!

This is the piece that I did for an online group that I belong too. Our first piece was to be based on the theme "Hidden Treasures". We were to interpret this in any way we wanted. I chose the sea turtle as my main subject. I fused pieces of green to create the turtle and stuffed the shell from the back to make it stand out. I did the changing moons to show the eggs as they hatched and the wondrous turtle emerge. I wanted to do it as a film like in high speed motion, that is why the reels are above and real 35mm film running between them. I crocheted the border piece and birthed the whole piece to have it stand out. I hope you like it!
Can`t wait to find out what our next challenge subject is.
