Minky Elephant Finish

Another busy week here, but I did manage to add a final finish to my Minky Elephant Baby Quilt.
This quilt was my first time with improve curves, as well as quilting on minky & I posted a bit about this quilt back in April. It just seemed a bit boring to me, so this week I appliqued the elephant with some velour from my stash.
I am likin' it much better! I did not use a batting, and the fleece gives it a great drape. I think this was the first time I did the machine binding.
Lucky me, I received a giveaway surprise package from Julie at 627handworks !!
I wish I had photographed it before I ripped it all open - Such a cute wrapping, and Julie stitches Pez fabric on her business card. Quite creative, and too cute! The fabric FQ bundle is from Caitlin, who runs 'I don't do dishes' , a great shop on Etsy. She has beautiful fabrics at reasonable prices.

And I am loving the Aurifil sampler pack. Has anyone ever used the wool thread? It is the red one. I might have to try a wool project just so I can use it:-)

Yep, lucky me:-)

Linking up this week with Julie at Thursday Threads, Cherry Valley Designs for TGIFF, and Sarah for Can I get a Whoop Whoop?  Sarah made the cutest Dresden plate Apron - check it out!
