Elephants on Parade!

My lovely daughter is due to have her second baby sometime between now and next Wednesday.  She requested an elephant quilt for the nursery, inspired by a pattern she found on Pinterest by Sew Much Ado.  I made my own little elephant drawing and the rest was easy.  She painted the nursery bright green and she requested the gray, pink, and purple to go with it.  I used all fabrics from my stash, except the Kona white (which I seem to run out of all the time!).

So here is my version:

I did a micro stipple around each elephant and a curvy wave in the white borders.

This is the label on the back.  It is blank because I want to add the baby's name and birthdate (after she is born!).

So if you are counting, that is the second quilt that we worked on and finished this month.  I have high hope for the third one but I go back to work in a few days... we'll see!
