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:
