I drafted this quilt after seeing a baby quilt Mom made with appliqued elephants. She pieced and appliqued this one and I quilted it with the pantograph Happy Times.
I love stripes for bindings and while I know most people use bias binding so they’re on the diagonal, I like them straight too.
This is UFO finish 6 of 15 that I had at the beginning of the year (doesn’t count any HeartStrings quilts!) Add to that 12 finished tops from this year yet to be quilted and 2 in the piecing stage and my total UFO count is 18 tops and 5 quilts that are somewhere in the piecing process…..and again, these numbers don’t count any of the HeartStrings tops here.
I don’t know how you feel but the tops don’t bother me at all — I love having them here so I can pull one and finish it whenever I need a quilt but I do hate having UFO’s still in pieces, those are the ones I have a hard time finishing.
