Paisley Splash Elephant Quilt

This is the newest commission quilt I’ve been working on. I love the way it turned out and really need to make one for myself!  You can see some of the design phase here. I just kept adding splash shapes until I felt it was balanced. 


The pattern is a free download from windham fabrics, but the final size of it is something like 22×33 so I had to get out some drawing paper and draw my own to the scale I needed. 


The fabrics I used were primarily High Street from Lily Ashby for Moda with some Tula Pink Moon Shine and some stash fabric as well. 


The background is a Kona solid, and the backing is a gorgeously soft cuddle fabric from JoAnn’s.


Yes, that’s my finger i front of the camera lens……. Oops! I quilted the elephant with a wood grain texture to simulate wrinkly elephant skin.


Then quilted the background in any type of swirl/feather/clamshell I could think of. 


My husband was gracious enough to hold it up for pictures in the back yard- he’s a good sport! Final size turned out to be 56×62. 


Thanks for stopping by to take a look❤️,
