I am working on a whale quilt for my grandson to put on his "big boy" bed since he had to give his crib up to his soon to be here baby brother. His room is decorated in whales. His other grandmother even painted a whale on the wall and it looks great. I want to make it big enough so he can use when he moves to a bigger bed. I found a pieced pattern in a book I have and sort of adapted it. I used the techniques that Belinda at Brown Dirt Cottage uses for her stars for the triangles. You can see that the whales are not all quite the same. I like that individuality. I am going to put his name at the top using Lazy Gal Tonya's letters using the four prints I used for the whales.
Ok This is where I need some help. I have several cute sea life prints. I have a big piece of whale fabric for the backing. What about the borders? Some of Belinda's stars in the corners, blocks of sea life prints all around? I need some advice.
Maybe some 9-patches with these prints and some solids? HELP!
I have no idea how people stand these sub zero temps. It is in the 20s here this morning and that is plenty cold for me. I am a summer time girl. If I lived in some of these cold places that I read about I would be loading a moving van!
