It is a really simple design, taking inspiration from Film is in the Fridge blog. It is strips of blue matched with gorgeous little elephant fabric... I love those little elephants!
It is the second time I have free motioned a quilt from start to finish - the first time as back in February for mini. I used my Craftsy class by Angela Walters to improve my quilting skills. The back looks just as lovely as the front:
I used pebbles on the solid blue strips:
Angela recommends using a pen and paper to sketch out the quilt design. Really helps to think ahead when you are actually quilting.
I decided to use the figure of eight pattern on the border... this one needs some more work, but I did enjoy giving it a go!
I really loved making this quilt and trying out new techniques.... just need to find another small child I can make another one for!
