Here it is ... Jammy's Jumbos!
... but there's still plenty of Ellies in there to keep her happy :)
I wasn't sold on the black dot and cream "filler" fabric to start with, but the more I look at it, the more I love it.
I used a cute pink and white elephant fabric from Spotlight for the binding. I just love the way they dance around the quilt.
So how did I go with the FMQ? ... well you can see from the (warts and all) pics that it's a bit wibbley-wobbley, but man-o-man did I enjoy doing it! I don't know why I was stressing about it, it was actually quite relaxing and I know that the more I practise, the better I'll get.
So, "cheers", "kampai", "salute" to that!
This is also my second finish for Q1 of the Finish Along hosted by Katy from The Littlest Thistle (tips bubbles down her throat again in celebration!)
