We actually picked up these fabrics on our honeymoon trip to Alaska but decided they fit the bill to make a beach-y, ocean-y quilt for her for her birthday.
Whales and otters Watery prints
I followed Jeni @ In Color Order's tutorial. (I used this tutorial before to make a quilt for my husband, so it's going a little faster this time.) Here's my blocks in process. The green background fabric is Kona Tarragon.
I debated which layout to go with and ultimately decided to ask my husband's opinion, since it's going to his mother.
He decided on the bottom one because of the mix of colors. Aren't those otters cute?? Here's the final layout - it's on the bedroom floor because it's too big for my design wall.
Now just a bunch of straight seams to sew and it's off to the long-arm quilter's for finishing! One less thing to do before the holidays.
It's hard to think about Christmas, though, when I have this pretty sight outside my window!
