Last winter Jen and I were in the quilt shop and when she saw this elephant fabric she decided to try to make a quilt. We bought the fabric, picked out an easy pattern and I cut it out then sent it back to school with her. She didn’t get around to making it while she was at school so when we went on the retreat in March she pieced the top. I brought it back home and quilted it. The pattern is Box Trot by Creative Sewlutions.
Jen doesn’t like quilts with a lot of quilting because they tend to be stiff so I backed this with super soft Moda Snuggles (like Minkee) in Elephant Gray and just quilted a big overall meander. She really likes and it is a nice size to wrap up in while watching TV or reading.
She did a nice job on the piecing but I haven’t completely converted her to quilting. She still prefers to make little things like bags and pillows but I’m sure I can turn her into a quilter!

Awww! Cute! It’s a perfect starter quilt! I love it!
Love love love it! Congrats to Jen!
Jen did a wonderful job! I love the fabrics she chose that give it motion. I think she is going to come around to quilting when she has more time. =) All the compliments she’ll get on this one will help, too. 😉
