Riding a Narwhal

Want to ride a Narwhal?  Who doesn't!
I love this quilt.  My friend Sharon asked me to make her new grandbaby a quilt.
She had purchased the Viking on the Narwhal fabric from Spoonflower and wanted the quilt crafted around that.  I had so much fun picking out the fabric. 

She also wanted the map fabric from Out to Sea on the back.  Remember the Quilt for Ivy?  That was for Miss Sharon's grandbaby too. :)  So she has two new grandbabies, with map quilts.  How fun!

 I snuck a little Viking man on the back.  He's in the ocean, mapping out his destination. ;)

 All the fabrics I chose, seemed nautical to me.  The blue swirls are tide pools, the chevron print looks like fish bones to me.  And well, the plaid, is just plaid, but it matched and is boy-ish and it ties it all together I think.
I hope this baby loves his new quilt!
