Here is the centre block...an elephant! It was fun to piece this little guy - he is made of 151 squares and half square triangles that measure 2" (finished)!
I wanted to make this quilt to donate to my guild's charity quilt program so I needed to make it larger than the size that Deb had designed (which was 52" x 48"). So I added a few more borders on the top and bottom and it came out to 55" x 69". Now it is a better size for a child's quilt. I was so happy to clear this fabric out of my stash! The blue outside border fabric I have had in my stash for a while...I remember buying it a long time ago at a fabric sale and it was the perfect fabric for enlarging this quilt. I look forward to quilting my elephant and just hope he does not slide into the UFO pile!
