Penelope's Elephant Baby Quilt

Hi there
This is my latest finish.  a baby quilt commissioned by my sister for a friend of ours Sharon who became a Grandma( to Penelope) for the first time last week.
I love making quilts for babies so was very happy to be given free rein with the design.  The brief was new mummy Hollie loves orange and elephants.
Fantastic, orange was not a colour I had a lot of in my stash but luckily I was able to stock up at the quilt show back in September.

 This is my drawing I worked from.
The elephant and balloons are raw edge machine applique and I used bondaweb.

 Prairie points were perfect to frame the little elephant.

 Borders added.....
....and onto the frame for quilting.  I used one layer of Hobbs 80/20

 Love the stripey binding

My gift to the new baby was some crochet. I love making clothes for babies, they're so cute!

This has been a busy month for me. I finished a customer quilt and I'm working on another commission which will be going to the USA.
I WILL be ready to start Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt at the end of the month.
Looking forward to it.
Thanks for visiting my blog today.
Happy sewing til next time
