Scrappy elephant patchwork

I finished hand stitching the binding on this last night-it is a quilt for the founder of the East Coast Momma Collective-Sarah Dhooge.  She is pregnant with her 2nd baby boy and gave me a list of colors she likes and this is what I came up with it.  I picked the elephant fabric first, and took complimenting colors from there.

I had 2 extra strips, so added those to the back along with Kona Ash, an orange, teal and chartreuse (sorry, I didn't look at the names of the Kona's-I don't have them all memorized like some people I know ;)

I did straight lines, corner to corner for the quilting with a light grey thread.
