Elephants all week long…

A dear friend asked me to make a baby quilt with the theme of elephants and in the colors of purple and gray.  Some months earlier, I had purchased seven tea towels at a garage sale that were hand embroidered elephants with the days of the week.  I thought they would be perfect for this baby quilt.  I cut a rectangle from each towel, added gray sashing, then purple borders.  I embroidered one elephant to balance the quilt top.  I free hand quilted the piano keys on the purple and swirls around the elephants and her name.  I added a sleeve on the back so she could hang it in her room. So adorable!
