My favourite animal in this one is the squirrel!
How about some cute puppies?
This one is called Elephant parade and it is the pattern I chose to work on during the workshop.
I chose a yellow fabric with polka dots as my background. These are my bluebirds of happiness...they were supposed to have tails that matched their bodies, but I used creative licence and left them as is.
The turtle was fun to make...I have used the dotty fabric in his shell in several quilts and still have some left for another quilt.
I am using black and white prints for my elephants. All of the fabrics were from my stash. The bicycle elephant is my favourite.
This one is a cut-up....
Circles are fun!
Here is one facing the other way. I made 6 elephants, three facing right and three facing left. I will use the extra one for a label on the back of the quilt.
I managed to get quite a bit done during the workshop.
Christine was there too and is also making the elephant quilt. She picked a turquoise background and gray prints for her elephants.
Lorna spent time with everyone in the room and by the end of the day, it was a real zoo with all the different animals being made! I went home and made three baby elephants and a frog. I have put this project aside for now as I have another one with a deadline that needs to be met. You will find me in my sewing room this week...
There is only one baby in this picture and my frog and turtle still need eyes.
Back to the sewing room now...
