It’s Far Easier to Make Than it Looks!
A darling elephant surrounded by loving hearts is the centerpiece for this sweet baby quilt. It will be absolutely adorable in whatever colors and fabric styles the new mom will enjoy best.
Surprisingly, the quilt is constructed entirely from straight piecing. The curves are created with fabric that is folded back, giving the illusion of curves and a bit of three dimensional texture. It’s the same method that’s used used in the popular “Mexican Stars” quilt (see it here).
Large open spaces give you plenty of room to practice your free motion quilting. Straight line quilting with the walking foot will be wonderful too.
The finished quilt is 32″ x 38″.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
