Now I can finally show off the elephant quilt I made for darling baby Leah. =)
Close up of the embroidered name.
|Good thing they didn't do a last minute name change! =)|
Here is a close up of the binding and the backing of the quilt.
Close up of the appliqued elephant. I just used a zig-zag stitch on my sewing machine. I hand embroidered the eye (with woven wheel stitch) and the tail (simple back stitch). It's hard to tell from the picture, but I also hand quilted around the elephants, so I didn't have to place a tie in the center of the block.
Here is the little elephant friend I made with the scraps. I ended up doing a patchwork because I had so few scraps left! Dang my mathematical brain and buying only the exact about of fabric I needed! =) Check out this post for a tutorial to make your own elephant!
I'm so sad I can't be there to snuggle with sweet baby Leah! At least she has my quilt to snuggle with!
