Since we found out earlier this week that baby #2 in this series (they always come in batches) will also be a boy, I went out and bought fabrics for the next quilt before the sale at JoAnn's ended.
My inspiration quilt can be found here. But I told myself I would wait until the elephant quilt top is completed.
So today I dug in again and figured out a layout and started sewing elephants together. It went so fast! I can hardly believe I have a top already!
Here's a better photo of the fabric for the back, since the last one was only really a tease. It's already pieced and ready to go.
I plan to bind it in the orange - already made!
And I was so ambitious, I also pieced the 3 humungous pieces for the back of the wedding quilt! (9 yards - whew!)
But now I've got a dilemma...what pattern to quilt it with. I have an elephants panto, but I'm not sure if I'd like the overall design on the quilt and am thinking maybe I'd like a 1/4" inside each elephant better.
The elephants are about 6" tall, so there would be a lot of repeats. What do you think? (Sorry it's sideways...)
Tonight we celebrate Easter with my family, but maybe I'll get home early enough to cut out the next baby quilt! Yay!
