Let's get sewing…

Cut 4 strips 3 ¼” x 30” from the elephant chain fabric

Cut 12 blocks 5 ½” x 5 ½” (6 from the fabric with crosses, and 6 fussy cut from the elephants in blue)

Cut 6 strips 30” x 3” from the white fabric

Cut 15 pieces 5 ½” x 2 ½” from the white fabric

Using the photo below for fabric placement, sew the white pieces to either side of the fabric squares, so you have 3 rows, made up of 5 white pieces and 4 fabric squares.

Sew a white strip to top and bottom of each row. Complete the top quilt by sewing on the elephant chain, see photo above for placement.

Fuse your top quilt to the Vlieseline R80 (super soft, luxury wadding) using pins or Odif 505 temporary adhesive spray.

Make up the backing by cutting the following pieces

Central panel 32” x 19 ¾” Elephants on teal

2 x pieces 32” x 9 ½” crosses on white

2 x pieces 32” x 3” clouds on blue

Join as shown in the photo below. Baste to the other side of the wadding, ready for quilting

Quilt using your preferred method/design. Trim away excess wadding and backing fabric.

Cut 1 ½” strips of white fabric, to make your binding, sew onto your quilt using your preferred method.

Your pram quilt is complete.
