Blue Elephant Quilt

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.)

If you would like more information about how to applique, check out our Applique section under Beginner Basics.
