This quilt was my first Hoffman challenge. I used lots of the focus fabric for the elephant. I used a collage technique for the elephant. I was inspired by Susan Carlson’ s book – Serendipity Quilts (Cutting Loose Fabric Collage). It’s a fun technique using fabric scraps and glue. I liked the landscape designs by Karen Eckmeier (Accidental Landscapes) so I used this technique for most of the background. I added Angelina fibers for the snow on the mountains.
Since my future daughter-in-law is from Nepal, I decided to make the background represent the landscape of Nepal. I made pieced borders from the Hoffman fabric for the top and bottom borders. Keep having fun sewing and quilting. Donna
