   This Elephant pattern was original designed as a twin bed spread for my kids jungle room. It was then adjusted to fit the standard 3 size pattern. Matching grays can be difficult to find, so finally we tried them with light blues and love the result. It would also work with light purples, making it a great neutral baby quilt.

3 sizes: Wall 24"x28", Crib 36"x42, and Lap 48"x56"  The lap size can easily be bordered to cover a twin bed.

 

Skill Level: Beginner The pattern lists fabric yardage, then uses tables to show the number of strips to cut and the number of pieces to cut from those strips. The entire top is then sewn using straight 1/4" seams. The shaping is done with quick corner triangles also called the snowball method. There are some instructional videos on youtube. Just search Counted Quilts.

 

Selecting Fabrics: Due to the fact that the pattern pieces may be sewn both horizontally and vertically to make the picture we recommend using non-directional fabric.
