    Abstract elephant

    I just finished this for my Granddaughter’s 15th birthday. It has a minky fabric called Chinchilla on the back. The quilt is quite heavy so I hope she likes it.

    Love this quilt, have had the pattern for a while to make my granddaughter one. Is the pattern difficult?
    I am a material girl. Wanna see my fabric collection?

    This turned out absolutely perfect....I am also curious how you would rate this pattern. Intermediate? Advanced? Expert? Don't even think about it?
