The free pattern is by Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts and available here.
My elephants turned out to be quite bashful. It seems they do not like to be photographed! I have been trying almost two weeks now but just can't seem to capture how cute this quilt is.
We tried parading down the street but it's been just a bit too dark - even with daylight savings time.
I was hoping to parade through a neighbor's naturalized crocus patch but it just won't warm up enough for them to open.
Oh well. Here a few close-ups of the darling participants.
I used some favorite prints from favorite designers including:
- Flea Market Fancy Eyelet by Denyse Schmidt
- Squared Elements from Art Gallery
- Crosshatch by Carolyn Friedlander
- Dottie from Cotton & Steel
- Bike Path by Alison Glass
- And my first ever cut into Liberty Tana Lawn for those pretty blue flowers.
The white background is Plank from the new Doe line by Carolyn Friedlander. I'm sorry you can't see it in the photos. I tried to quilt this with long narrow planks to match. It turned out looking more like a mosaic but I like it.
Marching out of March into (hopefully) warm spring showers...Left. Left. Left, right, left...
Linking up with others at Sew Fresh Quilts. Thanks for hosting all the fun, Lorna!
And thanks to Sandy at Upstairs Hobby Room for bring this quilt along to my attention.
