Move Along Pigs...

The elephants have come to town.

That's how it goes.

 Just like that.

A new crush: 6 meters of one, 5 meters of another. Of course this led to needing the matching thread and the matching Konas. There were even thoughts of jumping on the Elephant Parade Quilt Along over at Sew Fresh Quilts, because clearly an elephant will need building...but let's not get too carried away with all this precision piecing & pattern following.

There is enough precision to last a lifetime in the 36 blocks required for Tula Pinks pattern "Peaks and Valleys". If a person is going to piece high contrast points then dammit those points had better be perfect, right? By the time I get another 25 blocks together a free pieced elephant will be a walk in the park; a dream come true. And so will a bottle of Jack.

Why do I get myself into these things? Why can't I just buy blankets like a normal person?


  1. We are kind of crazy aren't we? But those points are kick ass girl! and the elephants...puhlease

  2. I think crazy is a requirement! The elephants are cute. I had a moment of weakness and thought about the Elephant Parade as well.

  3. It made me smile to read that you needed the matching Konas. An obsession is growing...

    Those blocks with the points scare the scrap out of me! :)

  4. Your TP blocks are just friggin' fabulous! What an awesome job!

  5. Oh my, goodness! We ARE on the same brain wave with the elephants and the zebras! I think your last line explains this phenomenon... We are both crazy!!!

    1. We ARE crazy.... but there's no fun in normal, right?
