I am in love with this little elephant.... I had so much un drawing it up and even more fun sewing it. It was one of my new designs that I featured at International Quilt Market in Utah this year. What I love most of all about this particular quilt was the fabric that I used from Adornit. When Janet at Adornit sent me the fabric I knew exactly what I wanted to make with it and this sweet little quilt with the peek a boo corner was born. I just love playing peek a boo with little ones. This design would be adorable for either a little girl or boy and it's sure to become a favorite blankie. My testers enjoyed this pattern and raved about how quick and easy it went together. I enjoyed the 'traditional' layout of the front of the quilt and the peek-a-boo surprise on the back! Don't fret about lining up the applique on the back, it's much easier then you imagine, and the design is such a sweet addition.
|Here I am cutting my strip sections to form my blue blocks.|
|Gotta have pink...|
|My sections for the blocks are all laid out, ready to sew|
the blocks.... I used a total of 12 fat quarters, 4 pink, 4 blue,
4 gray and 4 'neutral'.
|It's a very traditional block for the front of the quilt. It's |
easy to get the scrappy look using the fat quarters. It's all worked
out in my pattern.
|I added a piano key border to add to the quilts size.|
The border is such a nice addition to the design.
|All done! I did a basic stitch in the ditch, grid quilting on the quilt.|
