October UFO

If you are looking for the Save the Bees blocks and the Aurifil thread giveaway, click here.
On the design wall today is the UFO of the month. I have chosen a 2 year old project that is not on my "official" UFO list on the right sidebar but I can't resist working on it. I came across the bin of elephant blocks I started in a class with Lorna from Sew Fresh Quilts and became obsessed with this project again.
Elephant Parade


Total swoon... 
I love these guys!

To complete this quilt top I need to sew 7 more left facing babies, 4 more right facing babies, 2 birds, 1 turtle and 1 frog, for a total of 18 creatures. That's quite an animal menagery! OH yah and there are also 3 flowers to sew! I think it's a doable goal to create all these animals in the month of October and get them into a quilt top. It's an ambitious but fun goal to have this month.

I started that same quilt about the same time as you started yours. I think it is time for me to finish mine this month too.

Those elephants need to get into parade formation! I made this quilt too...it will be in our guild show later this month.

This is on my to do list someday too! I've made most of the animals and the flowers, but made them into pillows for my grandkids a few years ago. Should be no problem getting them done by the end of the month! They are addictive LOL.

Lots of cute things you've been working on the past week (sorry, trying to catch up on blog reading). I did do some slow stitching on Sunday, in my booth, trying to stitch down binding on my quilted jacket.

These animals and flowers are a lot of fun to make. I wish you the best in finishing yours. I haven't put mine together yet, but hope to get to it soon.

Good luck in your October challenge. It's such a cute block it should definitely be doable!
