Elephant Parade – Week 9 – Linky Party!
Welcome to week 9 of the Elephant Parade! I have been showing a block each week and am so happy to see the works of those who have quilted along. Some people have shared photos of their quilts by email. And lots of you have been sharing your progress on instagram using the #elephantparadeQAL hashtag. Some have made a block or two. Some have made pillows and some have made table runners. Some have made the full quilt as is. Some used their imagination to make the Elephant Parade their own!
The original post about the inspiration for this baby quilt design can be found here. I have also added a Elephant Parade quilt along page that includes all the information you will need and a weekly schedule. As each post was published the live links were added to the schedule. The Elephant Parade page tab is found just below the blog header.
Happily, Northcott Fabrics was as excited to see this come to life as I was, and has sponsored this project. I am SO HAPPY to have had you follow along and watch as these bright solids from their ColorWorks Premium Solids quilting cottons collection were shaped into these adorable animals!
Although it was not necessary to purchase the pattern in order to participate, many people did. And I really appreciate that, too, of course. If you are wanting to make the complete quilt, as pictured above, and would prefer the convenience of using a printable pdf pattern, Elephant Parade is available for purchase and includes complete cutting instructions and a detailed guide to finishing the entire quilt. The pattern is available in my pattern store here.
We’ve been working hard on making our Elephants for 9 long weeks.
Through this experience, I have met some of the most wonderful, friendly and amazingly talented and creative people from all over the world. Thank you, each of your for making this quilt along a success!!!!
Today is the start of the Show Us Your Elephant Parade Linky Party!
Please link up your finishes here. And then do visit some (or all!) of the other linkers and give them some Elephant Love! It has been so much fun to work together on these projects!
Even if you don’t have a finish to share yet, it will be fun to see what everyone else has to share. And the linky party will be NEVER ENDING. So you can link up whenever you are finished!
