I have been inspired for this elephant pattern by a vintage appliqu quilt that a customer wanted to sew with a paper pieced pattern for her newborn. My son loves Elmer the elephant so I have add rainbow patches. This block is also very cute in one color.
I think it is one of the favorite kid's designs, as elephants are big and cute enough to provide comfort and security during the night! It can be used for a wide range of projects, as quilt or wall hanging, pillow case, and many more!
This PDF quilt block pattern includes clearly labeled paper piecing pattern sections, clear color chart and comprehensive instructions to sew the block in a range of sizes with a size chart to enlarge or reduce the pattern from 10" to 6", 8" or 12 ".
This pattern does not contains basic paper piecing instructions. If you are a beginner, you can find several good tutorial on Internet to learn the technic.

I am a swiss crafter living in Canada, mom of 2 wonderful little boys. For the past 3 years, creating patterns and sewing have been my main activities. I particularly love sewing, quilting, drawing , soapmaking and flutemaking. I have built a soap company (Wild and Wise), have wrote 2 books about natural cosmetics. Walking in the forest, on the beach and watching my sons playing are my favorite ways to find inspiration for my next quilt or block pattern. You can follow my creations on my blog (bubblestitchquilts.blogspot.com). Last but not least, I think the best things we can do in our life are those done with love, and we should put love in everything. So, if you read this, receive my love!!!!
