W.i.P. Wednesday: True Prep

A while ago the fabulous Oh Frannson! posted her Preppy the Whale quilt on Instagram.  This quilt couldn't be more me if it had my initials monogrammed on it so when I heard she was looking for pattern testers I immediately begged her to pick me volunteered my services.  Given this is a test I wanted to try making one of these before cutting in to my "real" fabric just in case there were any problems.  Inspired by the Vineyard Vines logo I pulled some pink and navy from my stash and started cutting.

I needn't have worried, Elizabeth's instructions were as detailed and precise as ever and I quickly whipped together my first whale, Murray.

I loved him so much I decided he needed a quilt of his own:-)  A few stripes later I had this cute little flimsy together just begging to be basted and quilted.  Now I can't wait to start cutting a whole pod of whales!!!
