|Elephant Parade Quilt fabrics|
I've had a hard time resisting several terrific quilt alongs. But, since more than a few baby quilts are on my "To Do" list I thought it would be smart to join in with this one. Life being what it is, it's certain that I will not finish it in time, but one nice thing about this quilt along is that the link up for the finished quilts will not close. Plus, Lorna has set up a permanent tab for the quilt along. It that great or what?! Head on over and join the fun!
My fabrics came yesterday. I ordered from Fabric.com and wow was I surprised when I opened the box. Apparently they have a thing where, if your order comes within a half yard of being near the end of the bolt, they say you hit the "Jackpot" and they give you the remaining fabric for no extra charge. I must have been very lucky the day they were cut, because I hit the "Jackpot" three times... LOL. Thank you Fabric.com!
For the front of the quilt, I'm using Pepper Cory's Peppered Cottons and just love them! I picked out Oyster, Blue Jay, Cherry, Emerald, Sunny Aqua, Lake, and Charcoal, And for the back, I'm using Lorna's inspiration fabric: Happy Elephants in Grey by Ed Emberley for Cloud9 Fabrics, which is just the sweetest fabric. I can easily see what inspired the Elephant Parade quilt.

So ... Not that we need any further temptation... but have you joined any fun quilt alongs yet this year? Or... (I'm playing with fire here, LOL.) Do you have plans to join any that are soon to come?
Thanks for visiting!
