First, a bit of background on them. They have appliqued elephants, something that has been done in this family for a couple generations. The elephants are from the mom's maternity clothes and this mom had twins, a boy/girl set. She used her maternity jeans and wanted 32 elephants on each quilt, representing her age when the twins were born.
We emailed back and forth about design concepts, size of quilt and then while I was sewing these quilts, we emailed about thread color and decorative stitches (including pictures).
You will see initials in the lower right quilt block, the child's initials. I finished these this morning and now they will be heading to the longarm quilter.
This was such a fun project, one that will be a cherished family heirloom.
