Another Custom Rag Quilt

A customer wanted a lavender, purple, and green rag quilt with elephants.  This quilt was done by Tanya, Richard is busy working on another custom baby quilt.  

 This cute rag quilt is 40 by 50.  It has a dark purple minky on the back.  

The front has two minky fabrics. The dark purple and a lavender with a rose pattern.   The rose minky is super cute, but sheds tons.  It has three cotton fabrics.

I used my embroidery machine to applique the elephants on 8 squares. The design wasn't designed for applique so I ended up doing some close trimming after it was sewn. I can see a few more baby quilts with elephants in the future.  I think this is one of the cutest rag quilts so far.  Just in case you are wondering, the flannel isn't gone, I've just been busy with other projects like laundry and other fun cleaning projects.
