I'm back to playing with my elephant applique'. 

Applying the ear
I started with some colorful pachyderms on gray fabrics, but ran off on another tangent and did this brown paisley on batik. 

Better, but back to the PENDING box

It totally got lost, so I embroidered around it. The elephant's ear is made of the very first piece of batik fabric I ever bought, making it about 25 years in my stash. 

I'm not sure what's next for this guy.

Die Beem (Trees), by Lindsey Neill. It is 47" X 64"

Neill says this quilt, "combines two favorite sewing techniques (drunkard's path and bias tape applique')" She attributes her Pennsylvania Dutch heritage and love for Dutch design for her inspiration.
