    quilted Doll size Dresden on holiday

    and have one more elefant picture.:-)
    Was with DH four weeks in Sri Lanka and after some traveling we relaxed at a beach resort and I was all day long quilting - heavenly! Got a lot of remarks from locals about my "beautiful pillow".

    After taking the picture with the elefant as a quilthanger the mahut asked me to stand next to the elefant to take one more picture. As soon as I stood there he gave a command and the elefant grabbed me with the trunk - a bit scary at first!

    The quilt is 18 x 22 inch and it took me almost as long to load the pics than to quilt it...........

    Loved this little quilt before it was quilted and love it now. The quilting is gorgeous and enhances the wonderful job you did piecing it. It's adorable!

    Beautiful quilt with stunning hand quilting! You're much braver than me - I just couldn't get that close to an elephant.
