What looked like a scrap quilt with I was quilting turned out to have a cool X in the piecing that I discovered through the lens of the camera.  Wow!  The backing fabric reminded me of the Caribbean which inspired the name of this quilt.   I love the clover pattern and hope it brings good luck to who ever receives this quilt.

When I saw this quilt top, I envisioned rays.  Little did I know that the piecing of the thick vertical stripe and thin horizontal stripes would make this incredibly challenging.  The extra effort paid off and I am very pleased with the border/stripe swirls and the waves in the black border.  The cool factor on this quilt makes it perfect for a young teenage boy.

Cute little elephants in the top and bottom border inspired the use of this darling elephant pattern.   The top and the backing are both made from flannels so this is a very cozy baby quilt.
