Putting Little Elephant to bed

Hooray!!! I stayed up late-ish last night, got up waaay too early this morning, but put all the extra time to good use and got the borders on Little Elephant. Here's a picture on the bed for which it is destined.

And outside on the fence.  It's too big to show the bottom bit properly this way, but put the two pictures together and I think that covers it.  

Now it just needs a back and about 6 months of quilting, but it will have to wait its turn.

Linking up this time with all and sundry:  I Quilt at Pretty Bobbins, Needle and Thread Thursday at My Quilt Infatuation, Off the Wall Friday at Nina-Marie's, Can I Get a Whoop, Whoop, and Fabric Frenzy Friday.


  1. This would make you wake up feeling cheerful. It is gorgeous. One of your best.

    1. Thank you - it definitely cheers that room up a bit.

  2. I love how the borders came out. They look great!

  3. For some reason I thought this was going to be a throw or lap quilt. It looks fabulous on your bed. Hooray for you! I'll look forward to seeing how you quilt it.
    My attempts at an off center or improv bed quilt always looked wrong. I finally decided beds needed symmetry. Wrong. Thanks for the enlightenment.

  4. Enjoying seeing your progress with this. Love this style. It looks great on the bed!

  5. Amazing and BIG! Just beautiful!

  6. Really like this one. Yes, borders fit perfectly. This is such a nice top, congratulations. I hope there will be not the 6 month waiting period to see it finished!

  7. Whee!! So pretty! Nearly done! It is just so happy. LeeAnna
