I tried to like that other cake, really I did! I didn't hate it, but I just wasn't feeling the fabrics.
Staring at it, thinking about it and walking away from it didn't help.
Even my daughter said it "didn't look like something I would make."
Sometimes using fabric from my stash works out, sometimes not.
So...it had to go. I may still do something with it later.
I switched it up and decided I needed to sew something that made me feel good.
Black and red fabrics do that for me. So I'm using Moda's El Gallo now and I like it better.
I'm looking forward to making the other blocks.
Now it's time to move on and finish the Elephant Parade.
I was visiting Kris Loves Fabric and saw that she was participating in a new quilt along called
"Elephant Parade" created by Sew Fresh Quilts. Of course, if Kris was doing it, I had to do it, too!
It makes an adorable baby quilt...I love the elephants!
I was feeling rather proud of myself for following the really easy pattern directions,
something I'm not always good at because I'm easily distracted. There they were,
all cut out, sewn together, pressed and looking so cute. Then I saw it...WHOOPS!
All my elephants are going the same direction. Dang it! I missed that instruction!
Sooooo, my big elephants will be doing their own thing and going one direction.
I'm not sure how that will work out, but I'm out of the gray Clothworks fabric so I can't make more.
Next up will be the baby elephants...they are so cute!
