Out of Africa quilt

One of my latest quilt projects is this one, which I named Out of Africa. Remember, I told you that I wasn't a beige kind of girl.  The quilt is already hanging on the wall; that's why the middle elephant is not exactly flat.

I can't remember where I bought the background fabric, but I love it.  I used it in another quilt to represent fire. 

I have a stack of small quilts for my as-yet-unborn-great- grandchildren, and I had planned to add this one to the stack.  I loved it so much when it was done, I hung it on the wall. It is one of the first things you see when you come in our front door. 

It makes me and others happy when we see it, and that is why I make quilts.
