Seeing Double Pink Elephants!

I was a bit surprised when the above fabrics arrived from Michael Miller Fabrics.
It is a spin off on the old saying - "seeing pink elephants" - which equates to having a wild time!
Take a closer look and that is just what these elephants are doing.
These party mats would be a great beginning shop class to teach simple rotary cutting, machine piecing, fussy cutting, reverse needleturn applique, stitch in the ditch machine quilting and French Fold binding.  Once a shop owner - always thinking of class projects!!

I did 4+ quilts with this fabric in the aqua and gray and now it is making a return engagement in pinks and grays.  So with some simple needleturn applique of a variety of circle sizes a new design is ready for market!  I prefer the other colorway but this finished nicely.  

 And, last but not least, Super Heroes!!  What fun the bright primary colors are in this toddler size quilt!  Michael Miller Fabrics used this as a theme for their quilt market booth in Salt Lake City last week.  Yes, indeed, they were all dress like Super Heroes.  And remember, Super Heroes are girls, too - as featured in the fabrics.  My favorite fabric in this grouping is the city night sky (outer border).
