    Well I finally finished this quilt. it has been so slow as both DH and myself have been unwell since Christmas- I was even too ill to visit Ruby(my machine ) and have not been online for a while either.
    Soo I finally decided to use the Minky fabric on the back and finished the free motion quilting myself as best as I could. The quilt was very heavy to manouvre!
    Anyway I posted up a few pics of the finished quilt. It was my first proper design too lol The only problem is I have no grandkids to pass this onto!I am still living in hope

    Thankyou SheriR that is really kind of you-I have to be honest though- there are a few things I might have done differently lol if I was doing this again(always wise afterwards!) I would think twice about using the minky with all the free motion as I found it really hard, I dont know if that is my age or not but I found it hard to drag around , and I would have really liked to have 'puffed up' the elephants a little- possibly using a polyester filling may have helped, or some other method...what do you all think?

    I love this board- it is so great for all the support and help. I dont think I would have been half as adventurous otherwise!

    Irishphoenix,
    Omg! That is beautiful. My husband loves elephants. He thinks they are one of the most majestic creatures on earth.

    It is beautiful...the fabric/design and especially the quilting. I think you have quilted very sympathetically....there is a certain soft sculptural look about it...highlights the elephants perfectly. Hope you feel stronger soon....You are like many of us....living in hope of grandchildren. I keep telling them, unless they hurry up, we will be too old to babysit.

    Question???? How many hours did it take to fussy cut the elephants? The fabric you chose are just perfect for your design.
