Elephants for Bronson

My nephew and his wife are expecting Bronson in mid to late October.  Their nursery theme is "Elephants and Sunshine", so the colors are grey and yellow.  I bought a bunch of different grays and yellows and made a variety of pinwheels.  It's 48 x 52.

 I added applique elephants marching along each end, with trunks and tails connected.  They even have floppy ears!  

I created a quilting design of elephants and peanuts:

The binding is a grey - yellow graphic print, and the border is grey with white polka dots.  Found out afterwards that Bronson's sheets are the same pattern.  A perfect match :)

The back is a soft fluffy flannel with elephants, with some of the border fabric down the middle:

I also made Bronson some burp cloths from leftover pieces.  I love the yellow and gray dots.  That was a lucky find.   There are two of each design:
