Gifty Galore 2015 – Project 23

Elephant Babes 01

Are you looking for a simple and cute baby quilt pattern? Elephant Babes Quilt by Rochelle Martin of Cottage Quilt Designs uses four-patch blocks, and adorable baby elephants with appliqued ears that flop and entertain baby! When you use light to darker medium fabrics you are making the design pop. The medium toned blue dots in the quilt are perfect to set off the other fabrics.

Baby elephants are so adorable-my inspiration to designing this quilt. I love how the four-patch blocks march along diagonally and help the elephants stand out. And its so easy to make-a perfect gift for the new mother that she will adore using. Just change the fabric color to create a baby girl elephant quilt! Its sized at 32″ x 32″-a perfect size to wrap and cuddle the new little one, and its a great size for a play mat after the baby is a few months older.
