Baby Elephant Quilt...

Finished, one cot sized quilt.

I can't completely take the credit for this one, my sister & I worked on the top together, rather impressive for her first quilt I'm sure you'll agree.

I really like the colour palette, modern, gender neutral & fresh. I even happily parted with a little of my Elephant stash for this quilt. I think I will need to track down some more of the red fabric though, it's a new favourite.


Baby Quilt


























I used 100% wool batting as I prefer natural fibres & like more loft than the Bamboo provides. I quilted it reasonably close together in organic lines à la KateJacquie & Leslie. I was a bit nervous about trying the organic quilting lines but it didn't take long to get the hang of it & I adore the texture it creates.

The binding is machine stitched on & the quilt is backed with the grey & white polka dots.

All the fabric (bar the Elephants) was from Patchwork on Central Park. Glad this quilt is heading to a special home, I'm a bit sad to farewell it.
