Crib quilt

This is a quilt for my husband’s first grandchild (a girl due in may) her mam loves elephants. So I made a linocut of an elephant and printed up some fabric. The back of the elephant fabric was some I tie dyed previously. The other fabrics are all from stash, referencing various family things.

The wadding is a light polyester as the baby will live in Australia. There’s a strip of spare elephants in the back. And a small label that I had printed up from an AliExpress seller.

What a lovely keepsake!

I just love the elephants you printed…makes is so much more personal and special! Would make a lovely notebook cover in the future as well!

Also, I am really liking the double machine stitched binding…I would make more finished quilts if I did that!

AAAAAAAAAAAH! This is so dang cute and sweet, but not too sweet! What a treasure to have something so mindfully hand crafted for the new baby.

Also, henceforth I will call any group of spare elephants a “strip.”

Ha, yes it is a good collective noun. I didn’t want the quilt to be too sweet, I love pink, but didn’t want it to be too barbified either.

Oh, that turned out super fantastic! Those ellies are the best and that green plaid binding is genius, really ties it all together. Nicely done.

The lino cut is a brilliant way to avoid having to buy a whole bunch of coordinating elephant fabric that might not be exactly what you want. The quilt is darling!
