My sister, Claudia, loves elephants the way I love giraffes. I would have to say her house is as full of elephants as mine is of giraffes.
So a couple years ago I came across a pattern of four intertwined elephants. They look like they are following one another around a pole. The beginning of the block is actually, in the quilters world, called a snails trail.
From the very center of four 1 1/2″ squares it continues on with the beginning of the trunks. Can you see the elephants heads beginning to take shape? The pink one is a little more visible than the other one.
So here is the whole quilt. It actually only measures about 27″ x 27″ and she has it proudly on display in her living room. She tells me it’s her favorite, but then, so I am (her favorite). But that’s easy to say since I’m her only sister.
I had some fun quilting elephants in the borders. You have to look closely to see them since I used the same color thread as the fabric. The corner blocks are a repeat of the beginning trunks.
I proudly look at it when I go and see mom. You did a great job on it. My favorites are Dolphins and Angels.
You are a good sister. I love the elephants, especially the “Indian” elephant. ;)))
It is really cool! Your love and creativity are evident
in your quilts!
SO VERY COOL IS RIGHT……AND SO ARE YOU!!!!
Very cool, indeed. So. . . you and your sister are partial to those BIG animals from the desert. Hmmmm. . .
