One Panel Complete!


Sounds wonderful, doesn't it and now I have mislaid the insert with templates of smaller elephants - oh well, now I will have to play the artist and draw smaller elephants or try to downsize on my printer!I must say, I am really enjoying playing with these little fellows and using the great fabrics.
I think a lot more applique will happen this year - very relaxing! This one will be hand quilted in Perle thread, so I am really looking forward to that too. We are experiencing a heatwave here in Perth, so nice to be indoors in the cool - Australia is having extremes in weather, so let's hope we all stay safe.
Happy Stitching Girls and Guys!

If you cannot downsize on the printer, you could scan the template and downsize the scan. That is what I do in cases like this :-)

Hello Lurline,

Such a bright fun quilt you are working on. Elephants are such happy creatures, yours reminds me of the one at the zoo, who had a birthday last week.
Stay cool in this hot weather.
Happy days.
