    Here's a closeup of the elephants .......

    a real closeup

    a semi-closeup

    a closeup of the elephants on the wallhanging.

    This is the wallhanging. It can be hung either squared, or on point since the design is in a circle. It's called "Everlasting Love".

    WOW! I love the ellies with their gorgeous little tusks. That is such a wonderful gift. You sure look proud of yourself, and you should be, great stuff!

    It's my own design. I went to a "Sew Flakes" class with Kathy Wylie (her website is http://www.kathykwylie.com/ and I went with the idea of somehow incorporating elephants into the circular design. I wanted them all going in the same direction, rather than mirror image, like in most snowflakes. Kathy showed me how to do that, and then I went home and designed the rest of it. The beady eyes went on next, and then I went to the local bead store and found those beads for the tusks. Then I stood back and decided that 3-D ears just had to happen, and the rest is history. Jan

    Loretta, that's the first African thing I've done. My two adult children climbed Kilimanjaro together 6 years ago, and so that's why I decided on the quilt. The neat part is that my daughter is marrying a man of East Indian culture, and so the elephants just had to be Indian rather than African elephants. Hopefully I got the shape of the ears right!

    What a neat gift for your daughter and future son-in-law. I love the name you've given it too.
    Beautiful work all around.
