The Elephant's are Coming!

This is a quilt I completed recently and decided to enter it into the Blogger's Quilt Festival.  It is being entered in the small quilt category.

I made this for a friend who recently had a baby.  The baby likes elephants and the mom likes the colors. 

 I had never done a chevron quilt before.  I did it putting 2 rectangles together ( I am not a fan of half-square triangles).  It came together quickly.

 I had fun with the quilting also.  You can see the baby's name on the bottom.  I had a friend do the embroidery.

This quilt came together so quickly that I forgot to take pictures in the process.

 I did see the Mama and baby elephant on another quilt and copied it.  I liked them.


Here is the quilt on it's crib.  Don't they all go together nicely?
