The Elephant Parade Quilt Moves On

My Elephant Parade finally moved on with the addition of more of my favorite solid fabrics, 
Robert Kaufman Kona. Now I just need to finish it. Hopefully that won't be much longer, but there is
the much anticipated arrival of another Monkey Boy that might take more of a priority for me.
I should have made this in blue fabrics!

Sew Fresh Quilts has the correct version of the direction these elephants should be going,
That poor little turtle looks so scared because the elephants are heading right at him!

Baby Monkey Boy (soon to not-be-the-baby) and the other grandson, RJ, tried hard not
to let me get a picture without them. They seemed to like those cute elephants as much as I do!

I've seen a number of these cropping up as they get to finish stages - I just love your pink and grey version. What a sweet little girl quilt this makes.

Your quilt is adorable! Love the fabrics, the colours, and even the direction they are travelling! Your turtle will be fine meeting them! This quilt is on my to-do list and yours makes me want to start one today!

I love it Carol and I can't wait to make my own version too. I'm inspired to try it a little scrappy now that I've seen your wonderful quilt.

Carol said...

I love your elephant quilt, even if the elephants are all going the same way--anyone who hasn't seen the pattern won't know the difference! I can't wait to make one. Thanks for sharing!

I am not finished yet with my Version, but next week I will be sewing a LOT!

That is adorable. Wouldn't it be fun to do one in blue and one in pink for a set of twins?

Wow! Your pink elephants are absolutely the cutest! How sweet are those polka dot babies? Love it!

Rachel said...

This has me wanting to sing Pink Elephants on Parade. :) I like how your large elephants are mixed in. Nice work.

Shasta Matova said...

Love your elephant parade quilt! Love the fact that they are all going the same direction. Going back and forth made it feel like a regimented queue, and your elephant family is moving forward together! That's a great picture with your grandson and dog. They seems to be joining the elephant in the conversation with the turtle.
