Elephants on Parade

7.11.2012

I have another quilt that I could not wait to share, but it had to arrive at a little one’s house before I could show some pictures.  His momma is one of my blog friends and I did not want give her a sneak peek and ruin the surprise.elephants on parade quilt

The quilt got sent to Henry Woodward (of The NewlyWoodwards fame) and I hope he enjoys it as much I did making it.

His mom also made him some beautiful quilts(check out this houndstooth) so I almost sent something else.  But one thing that Carter has taught me is you can never have too many quilts to play on when they are little.  Because three of them are usually in the wash with spit up on them. Or should be in the wash because you have dabbed spit up off of them 9 times.

I picked up the elephant fabric and blue shot cotton at a local fabric store during a quilting retreat back in April.  And I loved it so much that I almost made Carter another quilt.

But while he is good for quilt modeling, this one belongs to Henry.  I did buy enough elephants to make another one just in case I find some spare time.  Ha.

The back is simple with some polka dots and more snuggly shot cotton.

  1. Beautiful!

    Also, what you say about spit up on blankets.... so so so true. Ahh the perils of tummy time when your baby is a spitter!

  2. Agh, I love it! It turned out so great! MY Henry would probably fight someone for it.

    Also, I love that turquoise dog. He and Carter color coordinate beautifully.

  6. I'm supposed to wash it when he gets spit up
    On it? Geez! All these mom things I should know. We love the wuikt so much and feel so special to have a Jenny original. I definitely squealed when I saw it. It's definitely been getting plenty of use. We have baby wuikts everywhere around the house so we can grab one at a moment's notice.
    PS your little guy is getting so bug! Such a cutie.

    Thanks again friend!
