Purple Preppy

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. :-)

      I like a scrappy binding. And I always save my leftover bits of binding to use on small projects or to piece together. The one I finished last night used up a bunch of those scraps. I'll have it on the blog next week. Thanks for visiting!

  1. Ahh, I think this is my favorite Preppy the Whale ever! And NOT because it's purple. ;) I love that you just made one block, and it's SO perfect in her room. I love seeing quilts in their forever homes. Plus, awesome scrappy binding. Home run on this one, Sarah!

      Thank you, thank you, thank you!! The purple fabric is some of my favorite Alison Glass fabric so I really love seeing this on the wall. :-)

      Thanks, Mel. Next up, I think we'll be adding a couple jellyfish to her ocean. (I have a couple from the Monterey Bay Aquarium to hang up in there.) ;-)
