Elephant Quilt Complete

When I was sorting the fabric to make the bag, I found some that I thought would be ideal for the back of the elephant quilt, but I still needed some for the binding. So off I went shopping and came back with a completely different plan.

As soon as we J and I saw this fabric, we thought it would be great for the back of the quilt and the fabric I already had would be used for the binding.
I then stitched almost straight lines, using the flower borders on the front as a guide. The front looks completely different now the binding is on and it is finished. It has really brought out the colour of the elephants. I think I may use some more of the fabric to make a cushion to match.
