Elephant Parade

Was working on digitizing Overall Sam when these little elephants came to visit and distracted me. So, my only defense is that they were so adorable I just had to play. And it was a three and a half  day and night party. But I love the way they turned out. It was difficult to take good photos with the black background fabric – the colors look washed out and in person they’re bright and beautiful. But I used the black background to go with the elephant fabric I bought. You know that fabric also comes with a white background. . .

I made an elephant border – Momma Elephant and Baby Elephant.  And made all of those elephants turn to the right and turn to the left so I wouldn’t have to fiddle with them when I got ready to stitch. Wouldn’t that border be cute for a horizontal strip quilt or a border on a baby quilt? Wouldn’t those little elephants be adorable facing each other with a little heart between them?  You can see all the photos at my embroidery shop.

Blog Hop Day 2 – stop in and have some fun:
