Ocean Whirligiggles - Top done!
I'm moving along on the pair of ocean-theme full quilts I'm working on. And I finished up the top of my dolphin whirlygiggles.
It feels huge! About 84"x92" right now.
I had to push the legos aside and layer the blocks a bit when I planed the layout in my family room.
But the big blocks are so awesome for showing off the graphic prints. And even in the small sets of four I randomly placed around, there's plenty of fabric room.
This Heather Ross print is so perfect for the dolphin-loving little boy!
I placed the paper pieced dolphin block so that it will not be covered by pillows at the top of his bed, nor hanging over the edge.
Smack top and center for him to enjoy! Plus his most favorite print is right below it. I waited for the organic Storyboek 2 line to ship for these wonderful bubbles, turtles, and octopi.
Another print in that Storyboek 2 line has a larger scale underwater kelp forest that is super cool.
All the fabrics in this quilt were so fun to work with. Glad I'm using them all again in a coordinating improv-pieced quilt for their other little boy.
All the boys are in school now! The two older ones started on the 15th, and Becket's first day of 1st grade was Tuesday.
