I made this stocking for a personal swap I did (Stockings+Stuffers kind of deal) and she said she liked elephants, so I found this elephant quilt square (I will look for the link to the free pattern and post it when I find it).  I had never made a quilt square before and learned many a lesson in what not to do next time (not to mention I got a rotary cutter after) but it was a lot of fun, and I LOVE how it turned out.



Comments/Question?


Edit to add link to pattern - As promised, here's the link to the free elephant square pattern! http://qnm.com/webextras/feature251/  Thanks!

Wow, that looks great! I especially love how the dotty fabric makes it look like his trunk is curling back around--did you do that on purpose?

Actually I did not, I hadn't even noticed that, it does look kind of neat though.
