Dandelions and Elephants

 Name:  Dandelions and Elephants
Design:  4" squares
Size:  36" by 44"
Fabric: Stash fabrics 
Quilted: by me with Aurifil 50 wt in white across the diagonals

Our son and daughter in law's friends are having their second and a quilt was needed.  This is for a soon to be born baby girl and the design directions were yellow, grey and elephants.  I felt some satisfaction that I was able to go shopping in my stash and find just that.  I used some of my favourite Michael Miller Kiss Dots in Fog.  I seriously love that fabric and have bought yards of it.  It is getting increasingly hard to find and it needs to be reprinted please, Michael Miller.  It is the best small dot, and the best grey.  Perfect for baby quilts, bindings, backings. It just is perfect!  I also used some of my hoarded Stof Fabric grey print, seed heads?  I have always called it Dandelions but whatever it is, I love it.  And it should be reprinted too!  I quilted it on the diagonals in Aurifil 50 wt in white.  I love quilting on the diagonal like this.  I don't mark it... I just drive, corner to corner.  So much fun!

Just a simple 4" square design.  Perfect for tummy time.


  1. So lovely! I have done the eyeballing on the diagonal, too. It is a great way to quilt!

  2. Really pretty and sunny! It will be loved. Has your bear appeared this summer?
