Sherry’s “Preppy the Whale” quilt

Sherry’s “Preppy the Whale” quilt

Sherry made this oh sooo cute whale quilt for a future grand baby.  The pattern is from Elizabeth Hartman and is called Preppy the Whale, can be found here: https://ohfransson.bigcartel.com/product/preppy-the-whale-pdf-quilt-pattern

I was playing around with an option on my Statler Gammill machine, where I can alternate every other row...so I took Patricia Ritter’s Good Vibrations #1, design which is available at  (https://www.urbanelementz.com/?acc=12) and used the alternating every other row option, and this design was created.  I love how the simple click of a button and you have something completely different.  I took a short video with my iPhone to show which option I used to alternate the rows, unfortunately I can’t figure out how to upload it here...I will post it on my Instagram @leishakaye with a picture of the quilt.

 Here is a look at the design after I alternated every other row....   Here is the minky backing of the previous quilt that I quilted, using the Good Vibrations #1 design as it was designed to be.  A little flip flop on every other row...kind of cool.  Excited to try this awesome feature on more designs.

I used my favorite 30 Tex poly wrapped poly white Perma Core thread from A&E and 8020 cotton poly blend batting from Winline.

I love how a simple quilting design can create so much amazing texture.
