Bee Blocks: An Elephant Parade
It is my month to be in charge of our quilt for the Believe Circle of do. Good Stitches. I was up for making something cute this month so we are making the Elephant Parade quilt which was a quilt along last year over at Sew Fresh Quilts.
Were you expecting to see some elephants? There will be plenty in the finished quilt. I assigned all of the elephant blocks out to my bee mates who are busily stitching away on them. I am making the accent blocks which are full of cuteness themselves.
The instructions for this quilt are very well written which makes stitching them up all the more fun.
The eyes on the frog and turtle are fused down and still need some stitching to secure them and the birds need some eyes and feet. I'll add all of that after I receive all the blocks and decide on a final layout for the quilt.
I will more than likely stick with the layout shown as part of the quilt along but you never know when I might decide to deviate and do my own thing.
I can't wait for those elephants to start showing up in my mailbox. This quilt will be a March or April finish and I will be sure to share it here when it is done. These blocks are making me wish for spring.
