    Ellie the Elephant

    I have had this elephant made for years, it was in the stack to be quilted. My daughter who is now 16 traced all the pieces for me on steam a seam 2 lite, I don't think she would trace for me now. There were I think 42 pieces in the elephant. I just had fun with it and just quilted whatever I thought of when I hit the spot, the ears have feathers, legs have ribbon candy, my version of wrinkles in legs, the head is pebbled. So I have my March UFO complete and hope to get it binded tomorrow or this weekend so I can hang it in my bedroom or bathroom. Thanks for looking. Oh and the name of pattern is Ellie the Elephant.
