Elephant Parade Considerations
Here are all of my elephant parade blocks so far. Some of them have the applique added, but as you can see, most of them do not. I really like how it is looking so far, but I have this great debate.
On one side of the argument, I think that this quilt would look better with a 5x5 layout. I really enjoyed making these blocks, and I would be able to enjoy making this quilt longer. The new blocks don't all have to be unique - I could add more elephants, and make the bird that is in the original pattern. And I could make more people - they were fun to make.
On the other side of the argument, there are SO MANY quilts I want to make, as you can tell from my last few posts. I am being tempted left and right with the next quilt. I also would be able to put away all the fabric that has been set out for this quilt, and get the space cleared up. And the 5 x 5 layout means that there would have to be 9 more blocks to make, and that seems like quite a commitment!
Today, I am leaning towards making more blocks. Yesterday, I wanted to finish it, and the other day, I wanted to make more blocks.
