Little elephant

Playing around with the bits I posted last time:  this is where I've got too now.



I pulled some much stronger orange-y bits from stash (like the stripe at the top) and I'm a bit happier with the colours now, though am still in a 'let's see how it goes' frame of mind.  

I hadn't originally thought this was going to be a medallion quilt.  Having gone done that road with Annie's quilt I was going to do something else, but it seems to be growing round the little elephant, so maybe it will take that form. Again, let's see how it grows!'

I'm linking up today with Let's Bee Social at Sew Fresh Quilts and on Friday with Off the Wall Friday and Confessions of a Fabric Addict. Also Cat Patches for the NewFO challenge.

The little elephant is adorable. I love all the patterns in your fabric.

Lovely work, Kaja! This improv style is so suited to the little elephant. Looking good!

Kaja said...

Thank you, and thanks for visiting.

Kaja said...

He is sweet, isn't he. There is a lot of pattern, which I like (and chose in the first place!) but now I'm hoping I can keep it all under some sort of control!!!

Kaja said...

Thanks Lorna. I hope it is going to work (having a moment of doubt this afternoon).

Kaja, that brighter bit of orange added exactly the right bit of Oomph to the block and now the peachier orange looks perfect! I think the little elephant calls out for just this sort of piecing. Love your work!

Kaja said...

Hi Lara, thank you for all your lovely comments! I'm much happier with that orange in the mix. Onward and upward.

I just love elephants, the more I study their behavior. Yours is so charming.

He is sweet, isn't he. I agree elephants are fascinating.

I love everything about this, the elephant, the colors and what you're doing with it all.
