Clever use of a monochromatic color theme gives the body of the quilt the look of a large plaid. Choose a color you love and play that up, or get creative with your own interpretation.
We can easily imagine the quilt in crayon colors, as well as given a scrappy treatment. It’s a fun pattern to play with. Just for fun, we’ve tweaked it a bit in Photoshop to show it with stronger colors but feel free to take it in another direction entirely.
The quilt is an easy one to make, too, even for beginning quilters. The easy piecing and fusible applique elephants will go together fairly quickly.
Instructions are included for quilts in two sizes:
- 43″ x 53″
- 53″ x 73″
