Elephants and Squares

 I found the perfect fabric at Textile Traders for a very new little boy. Elephants by Michael Miller and even better there was a precut piece of 1 1/2m for $7.50. I love that section in there. I am always hunting through there and usually manage to find pieces for quilt backings and clothes for the girls.
I cut a strip of it 6" wide and cut it, and some matching solids, into squares.
 I used the rest of the elephants for backing, quilted both sides of the seams and used some grey spots with a little strip of the elephants for the binding.
It is ready to send north so it can be used in the little bit of winter they have up there.

Oh my goodness, that's lovely. What an effective way to use a small amount of print. And I love the squares on the reverse.
