A Trumpeting Finish!

With a little bit of sadness and lots of happiness, my Elephant Quilt is finished!As I have said before, it was a great, fun quilt to make - I don't think I have enjoyed making a quilt so much - but then, they often say 'my latest quilt is my favourite'.
And now on to other things - I must do some applique and I must prepare something for big-stitch Perle Quilting. I have a fun weekend ahead, here's hoping you enjoy yours too!

What a lovely quilt, Emily loves elephants and you should see her throw up her little arm and make the trumpet sound for an elephant, very funny.

Well done....

It's GREAT!!! I need to work in the garden, spring arrived here and the garden is CALLING me, so this weekend no quilting or maybe a litlle bit.

How fun. I have yet to try the big stitch quilting with Perle cotton. What size Perle cotton thread do you use? And what size needle? I love how it looks and imagine it goes pretty quickly.
