Quilt no 28



Little Elephant

This is made of curved strips of batiks joined and handstitched over printed leaves to make it look all jungly and then an embroidered silk elephant applied over the top . The elephant is the last of a box of elephants that I carried around with me during chemotherapy to stitch into, the others have all gone to live on other quilts and this little chaps been waiting around for ages,time he went back to the jungle, and yes, I will remove the tacking....sorry
