Create a Charming Elephant Parade in an Easy Quilt |
Play with Color to Make it Your Own!
Cute elephants parade across this darling quilt making it perfect for babies and young kids. It provides many options for creative “coloring” as well.
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:
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!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
