Baby Whales

Great nephew #7 is on the way, due at the end of September. It's time for me to get going on a baby quilt for him. His mom likes blues and teals, and the baby's room may have a nautical theme, so I chose this super cute whale print...

 ...and some coordinates to go with it.

Some play in EQ7 resulted in a plan, and the blocks are started. Some big ones, 9". I specifically wanted a block with a large area to feature the print without chopping it up too much. There will be eight of these.

And some medium ones, 6". There will be eighteen of them. There will also be thirty-some 3" HSTs, which I haven't started yet.

I think this is the beginning of something cute. And it's a fun new project for me to work on. I hope to get it finished by the end of August so it'll be ready when the baby comes.

  1. I love that print!! By any chance do you have the backing picked out....because I have a piece that might be perfect!

  2. You always have such interesting fabrics to work with. The bubbly background is perfect.

  3. Love those tiny whales! And your design is intriguing. I'm eager to see how the three sizes of HSTs play together :)

  4. Such a pretty block. Fabrics are great, too.

  5. Great focal fabric and it looks like it will be a lot of fun to work on.
