Elephant Quilt

I saw this adorable elephant graphic while scrolling through pinterest one day and I fell in love.

This quilt is a lot of firsts for me.
The first time I designed a quilt on the computer.
The first time I have appliqued.
The first time I have used a long arm quilting machine.
(On a side note, I am addicted to that machine and must own my own someday.)

I love the way it turned out.  The little elephants just make me smile.
It measures 41x57.

I am linking up to Blogger's Quilt Festival in the small quilts category.


  1. I cannot get over how much I love those stylized elephants!

  2. What a darling quilt! The elephants do make me smile to :) You did a great job on so many firsts, how did you long arm it if you don't have one? I use a hq sweet sixteen, it's 1/2 way to being a long arm, you should check it out. You can go to my blog, or just google it.

  3. So cute! Love it! Your pictures turned out really cute too! :)

  4. The elephant graphic is so sweet and clever- love the modern and fresh look of this quilt!
