I knew I wanted to do a strip quilt with this line. It’s perfect with the big playful whales and the baby whales in a row!

The kit is available in the Etsy shop. It includes step-by-step instructions to strip piece the quilt in no time for that special little one. Kit includes all your fabrics, binding and backing, and sews up fast for a baby shower or gift. You can easily quilt with straight lines. It’s a DIY complete project! *batting not included.

And I have some helpful tips for you if you’ve purchased the kit and are ready to start on your baby quilt.

I fussy cut the baby whales to make this quilt, but it wasn’t any trouble to do so since the fabric was printed really straight to begin with. Straighten the edge of your fabric so that the ‘white wave’ is on the cut. Line your ruler up for the 2 inches. The white wave that’s next in line should fall somewhere on that 2 inches. As you can see in the photo, my ruler lined up between the waves.

Cut your strip out and attach to the selected fabrics, taking note of the whale directions. They swim opposite each other!

Sew the strips together in pairs and trim the edges. *When sewing rows, alternate your sewing direction right to left and left to right. Alternating will keep rows straight and help prevent stretching in one direction.
