Yellow Elephant Baby Quilt

My friend Orladh had a new niece or nephew coming and want to send something special home. she really liked the elephant quilt but she decided to keep it neutral with yellow, grey and white and wanted to personalise it with the babies name, weight and date of birth. I decided to go with a plain white back to keep things simple. She were all very happy with the finished quilt which was sent back to the UK.

Many of the products we buy have negative environmental impacts and I want to be a part of changing that. So I always look out for better options when making my products. In this quilt I used up-cycled fabrics and eco-friendly batting (the squiggly bit inside). I will be trying to use this as much as possible in my products.
