Whale of a Tale: Quick Adventure Quilt Pattern

Set a young child’s imagination on a smooth-sailing course for fun and adventure with this cute maritime crib quilt. Large patches, particularly in the center block, are a great showcase for novelty prints, and quick triangle-squares provide a sense of motion in an overall very easy design.
You can make your own version in time for that upcoming birthday party or baby shower and finish it with fast allover quilting, or read About the Quilting for ideas on how to take it up a notch and accentuate the piecing by using a variety of quilting designs in different areas.
