My Elephant Parade is at a stand still on my design wall because...
ALL WHITE FABRIC IS NOT CREATED EQUAL!
I already knew this, but I thought I had more of my white Robert Kaufman Kona in my stash.
NOPE...it is all gone! Yikes!
Here they are, all stopped facing the SAME direction. Poor things!
They were just heading towards "the chocolate on the left" and now they can't reach it!
I went to FIVE quilt stores in my area and managed to get just three quarters of yard of white.
I had offers of all those other shades and brands of white fabric, but none of them matched
this project I had already started. Shame on me for not double-checking to make sure I had enough!
I still have to do some hand stitching on the quilt, so I guess I will work on that while I
wait to get more beautiful white Kona...not snow Kona, not eggshell Kona, or any of
the rest of those amazing Robert Kaufman Kona's. Just plain white will do.
Good thing I bought the whole quilt pattern so I won't fall way behind, but you can get the free quilt
along patterns over at Sew Fresh Quilts if you'd rather do that. The directions are great and it has
been fun to see what people are doing with their parade of cute elephants.
Hopefully, my parade will get moving towards the chocolate very soon!
