I finished a quilt! I’m a starter and not a finisher but this had a hard deadline so I was motivated to get it done. I gave it to a coworker during our little baby shower for her yesterday.
Side note – I gave a baby quilt to another person who was there. He talked all about how useful it was and how the baby slept on it and all kinds of nice stuff. He said they got a few quilts so they could wash and rotate. It was very nice. Then he showed me a picture of her using my quilt. That was also nice but it wasn’t my quilt. I just giggled to myself and didn’t say anything.
This is Preppy the Whale by Elizabeth Hartman. The theme was underwater so I made the whales. Then I added borders to get it up to 36″ square. I quilted waves in the blue and seaweed in the pink vertical borders.

Hilarious that it wasn’t your quilt! Very noble of you to say nothing. This is adorable and yay, handwriting is super-easy and fun to quilt, n’est-ce pas?
preppy is so cute!!! I love the close-up wip you showed, it helped me to see that it’s really simpler than I originally thought. And love the idea of only 1 row.
Your whales are adorable! It must be the week for wildlife baby quilts! 🙂
