Introducing our new combo pattern: WHALE WATCHING.... & JUST WAVES

WHALES.... OR JUST WAVES - the choice is yours

This is a perfect pattern for quilters new to this fun technique.  The whale block is super fun and fits together like a puzzle.  In my travels I often get asked about my curvy borders.  This inspired me to use the wavy borders in "Whale Watching" to design a fun and modern bonus quilt:  "Just Waves".

The whales offer so many possibilities:
One single whale block makes a great pillow.  Combine several whales for a modern table scape.

Alternate setting:  Just Waves with purple background and fabrics from Island Batik.

This quilt is easy to make bigger.  The curvy waves are made using larger pieces and are super-easy, fast and fun to piece.  I quilted the purple quilts myself using just curvy lines made with my walking foot and different color threads.  It was just fun and relaxing to play and quilt these.

Use the Whale blocks any way you want:  
Play with your blocks until you find an arrangement that pleases you.  I just placed some blocks together to simulate a possible whale table scape.  The possibilities are endless.
