I made four of the Preppy the Whale blocks by Elizabeth Hartman . Two pink and two blue. I like oversized designs so I enlisted the help of a very talented quilty friend who enlarged the whale pattern for me. I had already used one of the whales, a pink one, to make this baby quilt for my great niece.
and I used one of the blue ones to make a quilt for a special little baby boy who shall remain nameless as I want it to be a surprise. Think I will make matching pillowcases with the remaining two whale blocks. This little quilt is my first finish for 2018. I don't have a name for it yet.
|43" x 48" |
The grey strips and border squares are from the scrap bin
|quilted on my Pfaff QE 4.0 in free motion and also using a preprogrammed serpentine stitch in every alternate grey strip with Aurifil 50#|
|And the back.....This is called Hook Line and Sinker from the Dark and Stormy collection from Dear Stella fabrics with the addition of Kona Bahama Blue, which was also used for the binding|
