Much as I don't want to admit it, my quilting mojo went missing just before Christmas.
I was worn out from meeting deadlines and keeping promises. Standing at the frame was the last place I wanted to be over the holidays.
Three weeks later, a closet full of client quilts has finally kicked me into gear.
This Elephant Abstractions quilt was at the front of the queue, and am I ever glad!

I'm so pleased with how this turned out, and am suddenly feeling excited about quilting again!
Here's a "before" shot of the top being loaded on the frame.
And here are some fun "after" shots:
Even though I used whimsical quilting motifs throughout, I tried to create natural looking wrinkles around the eyes. I wanted this guy to look sweet and wise, not crazy or angry!
