Little elephant marches on

Here's where he's got to.





I took a deep breath and sliced off some of the block of which he is the centre.  There may be more slicing and dicing to come but for now I'm doing it one little step at a time.
















Then I added a little slice of white.















I started making some little blocks that would bring some more white into the mix. (Though actually I don't think I've ever bought a white fabric, so this is really the palest of grays.)




I made this.

















So in short, smaller elephant, start to balance that block, more whites. Now the section I'm playing with looks like this:





Thanks to Ann and Lorna for their comments on my last post, it's really helpful to get another perspective sometimes!

I'm posting this on Off The Wall Friday.

    1. Good thing really - without blogging the process I wouldn't have a lot to show for my time! Glad you like it.

  5. Hi Kaja! You know, each time I see what you are doing I think "Oh that is wonderful!" and I am not sure what you could do to improve anything, if at all. Then you play around more and Viola! It's even better! the white/pale grey is adding just the right touch. You have a bunch of us here just waiting to see what you do next as you make your little elephant quilt.

Feel free to comment away! I read everything and welcome all feedback. I seem to be getting a lot of comments from no-reply bloggers at the moment - if you don't get a response, that will be why.
