An Elephant's Faithful One-Hundred Percent!

It's time for the final baby quilt of the summer 2015 binge.  When all is said and done I spent 8 days making 4 quilts.  Not bad considering I did some jewelry crafting in there at the same time.

This quilt features Michael Miller's Elephant Romp, Color Me Retro Kitchenette in Blueberry, and Floralism in Fresh Grass from Hawthorn Threads, paired with Kona solids in orange and violet.  The binding is a deep eggplant purple, and it's backed in the Floralism print.  The whole thing was quilted in a bright magenta thread to tie the elephants in better with the solids.  I love how it looks up agains the green, violet and orange fabrics!

And now this one is on its way to a new home with baby Caroline, who was born at the end of June.  Hopefully it will be just as faithful a companion as dear Horton was to his egg.
