Saggy Baggy Elephant Story Quilt

I finally finished a simple quilt that my friend Jessica and I have been working on. We got together one day this spring and put together the top in just under a day. Then it took me several more weeks to finish the quilting. Finally, Jessica is adding the finishing touches by hand-stitching the binding and we are going to present it to our friend later this week.

We added a sort of log-cabin frame to the blocks in matching primary colors. Then I machine-quilted around the motifs and between the blocks. It was easy to make and a friend of ours did the embroidery for the label on her Bernina. Cute, huh?
