Elephant quilt---Sneak peak on quilting

Recommended Posts

Well this is a project I have been working on in my Mornings before Hubby gets out of bed. I decided I wanted to make a purple Elephant I did not have enough purple so I swapped fabric with a friend on Facebook and acquired some of my sister in laws purple stash and Made my Purple Elephant . It is not quilted but he just wanted to make an appearance I am to busy with customers quilts to get him finished but for now this will be good. I hope you love seeing him as much as I loved making him

Terry,

 

I do NOT collect elephants, but twenty years ago when we bought our house (it was the model home) it had an elephant picture hanging in the family room that I asked for and was given.  Everyone assumed I loved elephants and from that moment on gave me one for every occasion.  I now have TONS of elephants.  Most of them put away in boxes.  I've decided that in time one of my grandchildren will collect elephants and will inherit my collection.

 

I love your purple elephant.  So much that I just purchased the pattern.  Thank you.

I LOVE your purple one so I may have to swipe your idea...or I really like rich, deep, burgundy colors...or rich, regal, royal blues...I don't know.  You've motivated me.  I like gray, but it's so predictable and it would depend on the grays and silvers I found.  Golds might work.  This is hard...lol.     

 

I would like him done in stained glass.

Terry, what's in the bottom right corner of your quilt?  Looks sort of like a fish.

No it is not It is a Pattern by Violet Craft and is called the Elephant Abstractions quilt. 

 

 

I love her animal patterns.  I have resisted the urge to buy any of them as they would just sit on the to do pile.  I hadn't seen the elephant one before, you could have an entire herd!

WOW Terry!  I Love it!!! I really like your choice of making him purple! Really stands out! That quilt would look great in my foyer; my foyer is African themed! I will have to invest in that pattern.
