baby elephant finish...

I was recently asked by a family member, hi - Rachel, to make a simple girly baby quilt using elephant prints.
These are the prints I found at Fabricworm:
 
 

so, so cute!

 
 I cut different width strips out of each print to add up to about 52" in length, then sewed them together
and quilted an all-over wave pattern.

 
I used some fun fleece pieces I had on hand to make the mom and baby elephants, then fused them on and buttonhole stitched around them. 
 
 
For my pattern, I found this print online and enlarged it. 
I guess I could have enlarged the print from the fabric, as well.
 
 
For the backing I used this flannel chevron - also from Fabricworm.

 
All bound and headed home to Michigan.
sweetness!
