I want to make a quilt out of them. I can't decide between the moda bakeshop lawn chair design
or the oh, fransson! chopped vegetables design.
Please comment and tell me what you think!

So I found my elephant idea weeks ago. I was stoked on getting started so I loaded up my babies and drove the 30 minutes it takes to get to joann only to discover that our ghetto new jersey joann had none of holly's beloved fabric selections. So I chose some others, hoping they would go with the color scheme (and picked up some lightning mcqueen fabric to make baby #1 some new pajama pants). I should have just stuck with the pants because those turned out marvelously.
I started cutting out my elephant only to discover I didn't have any heat n bond. I went to walmart and learned that since my last visit, their craft section had decreased 50-fold. Blast, no heat n bond. I refused to go back to joann so I ordered it online. 7-10 business days for delivery and they aren't overestimating one bit, mind you. Meanwhile another speedier-than-i quilter whipped her darling elephant out using the same pattern. Doh!
So I finally got all my supplies and appliqued the elephant only to realize I left no seam allowance for holly to bind this thing together. So now I must start this whole process again. Kill. Me. Dead. Or wish me luck, I guess.
