Elephant Abstractions

I Just started another quilt. Elephant Abstractions by Violet Craft is a pattern that has always intrigued me, I picked it up at Road To California in January. This is paper pieced and not too large. (54" x 60") 
There are 98 separate paper pieced units in the quilt.

 I chose this green leaf batik fabric for the background and backing.

I decided to piece all the parts before starting to construct the quilt. It has been going fairly quick. I joined a Tuesday night quilting class at Rancho Santiago College and that alone has been keeping me motivated to sew more often.

Here are the 98 units all sewn and trimmed.
Starting on the trunk. I am "sew" glad I made up all the units.

Dressing Downton at the Muzeo closed Mothers Day. I am already missing the fun times I spent as a Docent for the exhibit. The exhibit is now traveling to Memphis. 
I guess that means more time to sew. 
Thanks for stopping in. 
Enjoy your day.
