    The elephant quilt is quilted.

    I'm happy to say the quilting is done on the elephant quilt. It took me 10 days of hard work but I'm pretty happy with the results. So, it's time for show and tell.

    Thanks, Homespun.

    I have two more pictures, the middle and bottom of the quilt. Thanks for looking, everyone.

    The finish is just wonderful! I admired it the other day when you showed it. Your hard work paid off in big dividends. I like your elephant and think the orange background is perfect. I think the borders create a lovely balanced quilt. Great finish!

    The piecing is great - and the quilting enhances that!

    Oh my! That is beautiful, and I love the border. That certainly looks like a show-stopper.

    Beautiful work, Jean. Your elephant looks like it has a mandala tattoo desin on its trunk. Great accomplishment.

    The border is simply fantastic and sets off Mr. Elephant. He is majestic. You did a wonderful job on the quilting. I wish I had an ounce of your ability. Perfection at its best.
