Mt mom has had a thing for elephants for ever.  Really.. she has a gazillion everywhere and in every form.

so how do i celebrate her birthday.  by giving her one more.

she had asked me a while ago if i could make her a long quilt cause the first one i made is just lap size and she couldn't warm her toes and shoulders at the same time...  this one is almost 2m. (6feet)



whole thing

Stunning.  Did you draft the pattern yourself?

well. i kinda found an elephant quilt online and went to town with graph paper and pencil crayons.  i had to do some alterations to the original quilt in order to ensure the trunk was up.

That is quite creative.  Drafting your own patterns is a lot of fun.  I really like the design you chose, the colors compliment each other very nicely and it looks very warm.
