New Project?

Do I really need to start on something else?  You betcha.  One of the blogs I follow on bloglovin is Sew Fresh Quilts.  Lorna has some terrific patterns.  But the one I really couldn't pass up is her "Elephant Parade Quilt".  And to top it off - the pattern is FREE.

Here is my first block.

I cut this block out on Saturday but just didn't take the time to make it.  So this morning when I had an extra few minutes I got it made.  It took all of twenty minutes.  And it wouldn't have taken that long if I had cut a few of the pieces the width that is needed.  The hardest decision about starting these blocks is what colors do I want to go with.  This may need to be another one where I make two sets of blocks.  One that is the original grays and the other in brighter colors.  I see an orange elephant in my future.  It was super easy to follow her directions.  So if you are at all interested I would highly recommend this quilt.  She is just about done with the sew-along but it's obviously not too late to start.

Have a great Tuesday!
