description

My first memory of elephants is Daddy waking me up early in the morning to watch the elephants raise the circus tents.  Later watching the ponderous animals lumber down main street to the music of the calliope. I loved watching the elephants in Africa. This quilts is inspired by a souvenir from India,  a large Rose Wood Elephant in-laid with colorful designs.  Elephants seem so human.
