Elephant Pooh----Really!!

I call this little AAQI quilt Elephant Walk.  It is an unique quilt in that the quilt is not only made with paper, the paper is made from elephant pooh.  Mr. Ellie Pooh which is an Eco-Fair Trade company specializes in making gifts and paper from elephant pooh.  The elephants in Sri Lanka are being killed at an alarming rate.  Humans are depleting their habitat so when elephants come looking for food, they are shot and killed.  Mr. Ellie Pooh is trying to show the local farmers that they can profit from elephants and that elephants can be a vital part of the economy.  Stationary is only one of the products offered by Mr. Ellie Pooh.  You can learn more at http://www.mrelliepooh.com/.  The quilt is 9 inch square, machine pieced, machine quilted. So here is hoping Elephant Walk will benefit two causes.  An elephant never forgets--- maybe someday humans will be able to say the same.   Have a great Monday and Happy Quilting.
