Tag Archives: Preppy the Whale


Somehow I decided that my daughter's ocean bedroom needed a Preppy the Whale mini for her wall. She chose purple and I went with a green ocean background to match her wall. The two-color binding was born out of not having enough of the green for the entire binding.

Inspired by Angela Walters and Christa Watson's book The Ultimate Guide to Machine Quilting, I quilted the mini with some free motion overlapping wavy lines, using Aurifil #4093 to match the background fabric. The finished quilt measures 15" x 33 1/2".

Along with her cuddle quilt, I gave my daughter this quilt for her 4th birthday in May. Here it is on her ocean wall, with the giant squids. :-)
