Ellie is Coming Together

Today I am not running the roads.... yet!
So, I am spending time in my Hidey Hole
and working on the baby quilt for my Niece's baby.

The parts had been pieced and were waiting to be joined together.

I sewed fabrics together, crazy quilt style and traced the pattern pieces onto
feather weight fusible.
The fusible was ironed into place and I cut the pieces out, adding a 1/4" seam allowance.

I pressed the edges under where there was no overlap. 
This way there are no raw edges in the piece.
I used a glue stick to glue the pieces to each other
and to glue down the edges.

Here Ellie is all glued together and pinned to the background.
Once I do some satin stitching, the lines will be more defined.

She will have feet.. or hooves?? What do elephants have?

I'm excited with how Ellie is coming together.
Hopefully she will be finished soon.

Happy Quilting!
