The Fourth Elephant

The Fourth Elephant

michelle Quilting ,

My elephants were slightly neglected last month; I managed to make only one. There are a number of reasons for this, but I won’t bore you with that. I’m putting them at the top of my list this month, and already have one completed. The fourth elephant really tickles me. It looks like he has a wild eye on his shoulder. It also makes me think of the huge storm on Jupiter.


Here is the herd as it stands now with 4 out of 24 blocks complete:

    1. I’ve been using glue – Sewline Water Soluble Fabric Glue Pen. It works well and lasts a long time. I had glued a couple of elephants, then didn’t get around to appliquéing them for a couple of weeks. The glue was still holding just fine.

  1. Your elephants are darling! The one with the ‘storm’ on his side is pretty cool. I had shoulder surgeries (two) over the past year, and the laparoscopic photos from them always look like space shots to me, similar to the Jupiter storm! LOL! Hey, I have those rainbow unicorn scissors! My whole sassy group of stitchers has a pair!! ♥ 🙂

    1. Thank you so much! Your observation about the laparoscopic shoulder surgeries looking like the Jupiter storm made me laugh. So nice to know I’m not the only one whose brain works like that. I hope your shoulders are doing well! Those rainbow scissors are so awesome! I have a pair of rainbow scissors I bought at a quilt show several years, hence my hesitation at going ahead and purchasing these. But mine do not have a unicorn on them….

  2. Oh dear–I never know if the comments that just disappear go to a moderation queue or if they go to spam. I’m sorry if this is a duplicate comment. I love your elephants, they are wonderful!

    1. No worries! I do moderate the comments due to spammers. I’m going to see if I can come up with something to let commenters know. I’ve been puzzled on other blogs just like you were with mine.

  3. Sorry you had to lay the elephant blocks aside for a while, but this new one sure was worth the wait. What a cute personality she has! Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss.

  4. Hi Michelle! Your herd is really coming along nicely. I can’t wait to see what colors and pattern you are planning for the next 20. Will they all have a common theme amongst them – we’ll have to wait to see. Thanks for linking up today. ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Thanks so much, Roseanne! I already cut all of the elephants, but it’s been long enough ago that I am enjoying each fabric all over again.
