Quilting Arts Reader Challenge "Let Out Your Inner Animal"

Here is my piece for Quilting Arts magazine Reader Challenge "Let Out Your Inner Animal"
The challenge was to express your inner self using an animal of your choice.
I choose a big pink elephant because I feel my inner animal is my creativity.
It is a powerful force always eager to burst out and face the next project or creative challenge.

I was not selected as a finalist, but greatly enjoyed makeing the piece.

  1. What a fun piece! Sometimes I wonder how they select their finalist. I usually agree with some of their choices and disagree with others. This looks like a finalist to me....

  2. Great little piece Jeanette! I can't say I agree with all the choices either... to me this one looks like a finalist, actually so did Ann's [our group]... your threadwork is fantastic!

  3. I have been fond of elephants all my life and I love your idea of a pink elephant = creativity. Would you share how this was made? Is the green background embroidered? Love it!

  4. Jeanette - your work is beautiful! all of it!! You posted a comment on my blog (thank you) that led me to your blog - I am so glad. I have enjoyed seeing your art. About your holiday ornaments from scraps - I am so happy to see someone else keeps lots of tiny, teeny scraps.
