    Crazy Elephant Finished

    Here it is, for what it's worth. Finished. Not perfect but I did me best.

    The edges are a bit wavy and in hind sight I should have put a plain border on it as well to stabilize the pieced border, that way I think any stretch would have been discreetly lost thus leaving a stable edge to bind. I decided to bring the backing forward to the front and paid the price. Oh well, live and learn.

    I have started a "Radical" quilt for a chap who is surfing mad, and has holidays in Hawaii. It's a make it up as I go along. I have found the fabrics hard to use in any other way, I am doing some machine embroidered designs to enhance things a bit. It is a bit weird I suppose. Should I be showing it? I'm not sure. I'll wait and see.

    Lovely job...you really shouldn't point out things you felt were not perfect...be kind to yourself . Elephants are so cute and wonderful pinwheels
