The Elephant Abstractions Quilt

The Elephant Abstractions Quilt is the third large scale project in my Abstractions series. This foundation paper pieced quilt is made with one striking large scale block.

Color Chart Conversion

The chart below shows a possible conversion between the Michael Miller Cotton Couture swatches and the Robert Kaufman Kona swatches. There are not exact matches. While the digital representations are close, they are not perfect and every screen may render them in a different way.

Robert Kaufman Fall Textures Kit

I released a kit with Robert Kaufman featuring their Manchester, Manchester Metallics, Essex Metallic and Kona Cotton. Kits are available from local quilt shops or you can create your own kit using the guide below. 


Alternate paper sizes.

To print the Elephant on A3 paper, reduce the pattern size to 94%. Maintain the 1/4" seam allowance when sewing the pieces together. 



In some early patterns, there are two template #66 pieces. Both are marked 66A. It doesn't matter which side of piece 66 you do first so you can choose which piece to sew first. 

Also, some early patterns do not include a scale for printing the templates. Here are a few images of templates with a ruler. Please compare your printed templates to the ruler measurements in these images to verify that yours were printed correctly to scale.
