The elephant quilt has been completed! The recipient has received it so I can finally share it. The fabric is Alphabet Soup by Zoe Pearn for Riley Blake and I used the pattern Sparkling Gemstones from the book Jelly Roll Quilts. The sashing is Kona Sky.
This was such a fun pattern to piece and went together fairly quickly. The baby that I intended to have this ready for before he was born is now 6 months old. I started piecing it back in October but I didn't finish it until March because it took me a while to realize it needed an elephant! (I hope he forgives me) :)
I took the design from one of the elephants in the fabric pattern, enlarged it, traced it, attached it to the quilt with Steam-A-Seam 2, and zig zagged the edges around it.
Here's a closer shot of the quilting and my embroidered logo. I free-motioned a boxy meandering stitch. (inspiration from Oh, Fransson!)
The back is a big piece of Blue Alphabet Boy Main with a strip of Kona Sky. The binding is Kona Everglade.
