Jennifer Sampou ––  
Stitch a scrap-friendly quilt and pillow inspired by Jennifer Sampou’s travels to Thailand.

The best-selling fabric designer pairs paper-pieced and appliquéd motifs with a background of easy-to-sew strips. Gender-neutral and customizable, this artistically modern design is a definite showpiece. The full-size pattern includes complete instructions to make a quilt and a matching pillow. Proceeds from the sale of this pattern will be donated to Elephant Nature Park in Thailand, whose mission is to provide a rescue and rehabilitation center for elephants.

• Unique, gender-neutral design with full-size patterns
• Soft background with a splash of vibrant color
• Paper-pieced, appliquéd elephant and person motifs


Yardage is based on 42˝-wide fabric.

  • Colorful fabric scraps (for appliqué): 30–40 pieces of fabric, at least 5˝ × 8˝ each (I used my Studio Stash yarn dyes, Kona solids, and a few simple prints from my Color:FULL collection. Because this quilt design was inspired by an experience I had in Thailand, I also added a few Thai silks I brought home.)
  • Light- to medium-value neutrals (for background): 1/8–1/2 yard each of 11 different fabrics, to total approximately 31/2 yards (I used 4 different prints, 3 yarn dyes, and 4 different whites / light solids.)
  • Heavy twine: 8 pieces 7˝ long for tail
  • Tracing paper or foundation paper: (I like Carol Doak’s Foundation Paper for this project.)
  • Lightweight fusible interfacing: 1/4 yard (I used Wonder-Under.)
  • School glue stick
  • Binding: 3/8 yard
  • Backing: 33/8 yards
  • Batting: 58˝ × 64˝ (I used lightweight 100% cotton batting.)
