A Whale of a Time for two beautiful boys

I created “Whale Of a Time” last month for a very special arrival in my extended family.  We weren’t sure whether he would be a he or a she – so Elizabeth Hartman’s Preppy the Whale pattern seemed ideal !  I had completed the top of the quilt a couple of weeks earlier but was awaiting the arrival of this gorgeous baby to choose the backing – as I have to confess if Master P was not a boy the backing would have been pink !!

These rainbow whales just make me smile every time I look at them – a great quilt for tummy time.

For the Quilting I used swirls but included on each whale the splash of water coming from their blow holes – it looks really effective .

Last week, my cousins sent me a photo of their gorgeous boys enjoying their arrival gifts !!

Isn’t Master P so cute ??  So little when they are a week old !  The Size of the Quilt 60×45″ is an ideal size for a play mat or a cot quilt, or both.

Now for Master H who is just about to turn 2 – I thought how do I make him feel special too – so I created this double sided super hero cape – on one side it has the Batman logo and the other Super Big Brother.  Apparently he was Super Big Brother for days – fantastic !!

Being a Mum of four – it is always that fine line, giving them the attention while everyone “goo and gahs” over the new arrival.  Im glad the cape made Master H feel brave and super !!

Congratulations T & C on your beautiful boys.

With lots of love
