Pattern Details

Laying back and squirting water from your nosewhat could be a happier moment for a baby elephant! Share George's joy of life with your little one. This quilt will make you smile every day. You will also be pleasantly surprised when you see how easy it is to make this quilt. George is a big baby elephant but the pattern comes full size. When you print the pieces to make the George applique they tape together and form the template. The applique and the quilting are done at the same time. The appliques are sewn with raw edges . These are designed to fray to the sewn edges and give a cozy, folk feel to the quilt. There are no time consuming satin stitches or messy glue paper. The binding is a shortcut method where the edges are sewn all around and then clipped to fringe. Every step in this quilt was planned to create the most beautiful quilt possible in the most efficient way possible. There are numbered steps and photographs to guide you. The pattern pieces are full size designed to be printed from standard computer paper. There are 6 pages of instructions and 24 pages of templates. You can visit my blog at to see the design process for George:) SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS approximately 53x42 inches (134cmx107cm)
