With some pieces as large as a foot across, this paper piecing project gives you an elephant-sized pieced panel in no time at all.     The pattern  calls for 10 colors..   a couple for the tusks, a couple for the background and the rest a variety of elephant-colored grays or browns.  The finished size of the elephant center is 32″ w by 29″ high.  I added ombre grass fabric for the background and borders… piecing together what I had from the estate collection of a quilting friend.   The borders I leave up to you, but the elephant pattern you are welcome to download for $5. It consists of a color chart, a piecing sequence map, and a dozen pages of line drawings to fit together for the pattern.   I made mine by printing in reverse on freezer paper, but a couple of other techniques will work perfectly as well.

Drop me a note if you have questions.
