Blue Elephant Quilt
Quilt Pattern/Name: Blue Elephant Quilt (Laundry Basket Quilts Pattern)
Quilt Size: 48 inches by 50 inches
Quilt Maker: pieced by Ann Tarabini/machine quilted by Angie Woolman
Quilt Completion Date: completed 2017
Extra Information: I knew I had to have this elephant pattern when I saw the quilt made up in different Kaffe Fassett fabrics hanging at Sister’s Scraps Quilt Shop in Amarillo. I bought the stencil at the store in Texas but you can purchase it online from Laundry Basket Quilts.
This quilt looks good in all kinds of fabrics but I decided to go with some of my favorite blues. I used a lightweight fusible to applique the elephants to the background fabric and then I topstitched around each piece. Angie Woolman quilted a different design on each elephant.
This is was a fun quilt to make. I enjoy trying out different fabrics on the elephant. My favorite fabric is shown in the photo below. (It’s missing and I am sad this is the only photo I have.)
