Elephant in pink, white and green easy cot quilts
On a roll here….! My next 2 easy cot quilts 9 & 10 are on their way. What did you say?? it’s a girl!! so all green tones wouldn’t really be ok. My next baby was on it’s way and it was a family baby! Drum roll – big cheers a 3rd cousin or is it 4th…who cares it’s a family baby!!! Although I still wanted to keep the easy cot quilt idea going, I really wanted to add a little bit more. That’s when I came upon the idea of an applique elephant. Ok…I can’t help the fact that at times there are more babies coming into the world than I can cope with or rather have time to make quilts for.
It’s a bit like work, there are highs and lows… Babies come and then there’s a lull. However at time the lows are few and far between. Isn’t it wonderful that there always is an abundance of new life coming into the world? I feel blessed to be a part of this. Ok I digress…easy cot quilt 9 was for my cousin’s eldest son. She and I have always been close and I was so happy for her that she was to become a grandmother.
So I started doodling some ‘designs’ and decided to have a baby elephant as the centre focus. At the time we were not aware of the sex, however when we were told I made a quick dash to my favourite quilt shop and bought a bit more pink in the same range. Let me unveil easy cot quilt number 9 – baby elephant in pink.
Easy cot quilts 10 – baby elephant in green.
One of my colleagues at work was expecting. You see, I told you, these babies keep on coming. Not only do they do that, but at so many different levels they ‘touch’ me. I may never meet these babies but that’s ok. I get so much enjoyment in the making and the giving.
This next baby was to be a boy. I had all this green material left over so decided to make a similar quilt but using the greens and blues bits of material. At this point in time I also decided to have someone make me a baby elephant design that I could use as my banner and eventually hopefully a whole lot more. So it’s sort of like a signature.
