My Preppy the Whale baby quilt is done! These whales are ready to swim off to their new little owner. : )
This quilt is for my newest nephew, Leo. Leo’s mom is a veterinarian, so I landed on the idea of making him a quilt from one of Elizabeth Hartman’s animal patterns. They’re all pretty irresistible, but I especially loved these whales. They’re very easy to piece, too!
And of course, here’s some of the scallop stitch “wavy” quilting. (It’s stitch #719 on my Bernina 750.) This is such an easy way to quilt something! It’s especially perfect for those of you who haven’t tackled free-motion quilting yet—this is a way to get something that looks FMQ-ey, but it’s not. (Also, can we officially make “FMQ-ey” a word? That really needs to be a word.)
So these guys are off to live with Leo. Have fun, little whales! I’ll miss you!
