Let your coordinated scraps make a statement with this sweet Ticker-Tape Elephant Wall Hanging that's fun to make from start to finish!

In this part 1 of 3 Quilter's Skill Builders online video classes brought to you by Annie's Creative Studio, quilting expert Nancy McNally demonstrates how to print out the pattern at 100% and tape together your multi-piece elephant diagram.
