Block # 37~ Friday September 14

In my post, Quilting Grandma, I shared some memories I have of time spent with my grandmothers. I have spent the past two rainy days just thinking back to special moments with my family, especially my grandchildren. This led me to think of a design for my hexagon block for this week’s fabric journal entry.
The elephant is one of my favorite animals…so majestic and beautiful. I read that the elephant is a symbol of family, love, patience, strength and good luck. The elephant has strong memory. It is a symbol of the gift of remembering beautiful moments of joy and happiness.
I have a collection of small elephants that my mother collected. I have also added some of my own elephant figurines to the collection.
So, I decided to make an appliqued elephant to represent the gift of special memories.
