A Friday finish - elephants

When the heat index is 110 for several days in a row (today is #3) it is easy to stay indoors and get some binding done.  My 1930s elephant quilt is done except for a label.


These elephant blocks are from a blog that no longer seems to be online so I'm glad I printed the pattern when I originally saw it several years ago. I love, love, love these elephants and this is the second quilt I've made using the pattern. 

The first quilt was gifted to my oldest daughter.  It has been used and loved up a LOT since 2012. She even took it along on a 5 day bicycle ride earlier this summer as part of her bed roll.  I called this one Polka Dots and Pachyderms.  But I have no idea for a good name for the new one. Any ideas for me?

  1. Perhaps call it Elephant Parade?
    Yeah, we are heading into some awful heat in CA over the weekend.

  2. I don't have a name for the quilt but I like those elephants! Love the colors you used. I made two (mama and baby) for a pillow that the grands seem to love.
    Here in Louisiana it's pretty hot, too. We face 105 degree heat index daily. Thank goodness for a/c, right?

  5. Love your elephant quilts. How about "Ellies Everywhere".
    WE are not having a heatwave where we live. It's winter down here in New Zealand, it's cold and raining and the wind is whistling around the door. Luckily I've got a nice big pot of soup bubbling away on the stove!
