Another Julie's Round Robin

This week i worked on this Round Robin from an off shoot of the Kaye Woods Quilting Friends group called the Learning Fabric Art's group. This one belongs to another lady named Julie. I decided her traditional style quilt needed some crazy quilting so i did a crazy quilt border on one side and a regular strip of elephant print fabric on the other, after adding a 1 1/4" black border all around.
Here at the top of the strip i added a branch of flowers and leaves, below that is a printed on silk, pic of an elephant and her baby, i added some coconut shell beads at each corner. To the left i added some little metal charms and an elephant button I had.
Below i made some golden yellow yoyo flowers and to the right of that some cascading lily like acrylic flowers down the seam. The elephant print fabric is from a friend in South Africa.
Below the print i used some cool fringe trim and a bead and button cluster featuring an African mask button. Then i used a couple of coconut shell spears with some beads between to do that seam.
Another elephant with some trim around and acrylic flowers framing it. Also a feather stitch seam treatment to the right, and a couple of lazy daisies with bead stems
The bottom is another african type fabric with a black fringy trim and beads above it. i thought this pic of the indian elephants all dressed up was neat so printed it out on silk too and used a gold metallic trim to frame it. made a wooden bead flower in the corner.

A Little About Me

Hi and Welcome! I am 50 years old, married with 2 girls Andrea and Crystal, and 3 grandchildren. A girl, Jesi who is 13 that we are raising and a boy, Christian, who is 6 and, lives with Mom. Andrew James or Peanut is 6months old and brother to Jesi. We live in a house built in 1897 that is not in the best of shape but we are working on it and we love it. It is a 2 story colonial style with big columns and a big wrap around front porch. We also have 6 cats, of which only part of are allowed in the house, and 5 dogs. A Momma dog and 4 puppies. She had 9, we gave one away, then they all came down with parvo. I lost 4 but was able to save 4. A heartrending experience but was just glad to be able to save any. No help from the vet as they want so much money but found some homeopathic remedies that actually worked. I also have a 7 month old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel that is my baby. She goes everywhere with me, sleeps under the covers with me, and is just the cutest thing ever.
