First Finish for April

Woo Hoo! I've finally found the time to quilt and bind my String Quilt. Nice to have it finished and now I've seen another string block quilt that I really want to make. I must be crazy!!!
I started making this quilt after seeing Stephanies "No Strings Attached" Challenge here.
This cute little elephant pin cushion is a Heather Bailey pattern. I found it in my favourite little Quilt shop... Homespun & Beautiful. He was so much fun to make....
That I made two of them!!!
They are only 4 inches high!
Hope everyone is having a wonderful, productive week!

Well done, a quilt finished. It looks lovely! And I really like your elephants! Can picture them as pincushions, but well, I can make a pincushion out of everything ;-)

Love the string quilt and those pincushions could become addictive. Very cute you could enlarge the pattern to various sizes to make a family. Happy sewing Teresa.
