Elephant Quilt Exhibit


Hello! Welcome back to the Musee de la Grande Route.  You are in for a treat again today - a showcase of a specially curated selection of quilts. Today, I am featuring quilts I have made that have elephants in them. Long time readers who have already seen the quilts are rewarded with brand new photos they have never seen.

You may have seen this photo already, but it was in 2009 and it is tucked away someplace safe right now.

This one is from 2015. It is a brand new photo. I was able to use my brand "new" porch coffee table.

This one is from 2018. Another grand new, never seen before photo.

Here they are together so you can see a size comparison.

Well, that's it. Only three elephant quilts. 

In order to avoid disappointment, and avoid a revolt, I am going to break the rule that the quilts must be finished and give you a sneak peek into the works in progress room. There are plenty that also have elephants.

The Elephant Parade is still blocks waiting to be pieced together.


The Circle 365 quilt is pieced, but has lots more blocks to add before I get to 365(ish).

Both of these elephants are in the Quote Quilt which I have been showing you all this year. It's been a few months since I showed you these elephants though.

I hope you have enjoyed this quilt exhibit.  Be sure to come back for the next exhibit.

Loved the tour. I enjoy the feelings of whimsy and happiness I get when you share your creations. The Elephant Parade needs to come together - it's so great.

I especially like the elephant with the bright blue border. Fun exhibit! :-)

Thanks for your exhibition. I’ve done part of the Fresh Quilt Elephant parade too. I like that you’ve added your own animals too.

A very fun and colorful elephant parade!

Fun to see this elephant parade! I can honestly say I've never included an elephant in a quilt... yet. :).

Kyle said...

Wow! What a pachyderm parade.

Tanya said...

You've got some wonderful elephants! I remember most of them!

Cathy said...

Oh what fun! I usually don't like parades...standing, people, traffic...but I really really enjoyed your elephant parade.

I guess I haven't been here for awhile so had to review the quote quilt. More fun. Great quotes. And it reminds me that I have a CQ2020 I probably haven't worked on in a year. Maybe I need to share in the fun! Now...where did I put it??

I hadn't seen elephants on a quilt before. I like each of yours..the third one is my favourite. Wonderful work.

Oh, I love that work in progress...I have never made anything with an elephant. Maybe one of these days I will.
