I found a fun fabric to anchor the quilt, colorful elephants, but what to do on the front? I browsed the pile of magazines and found a block that I thought would be perfect. The block, found in Quiltmaker's 100 BLOCKS, vol. 7 is FRAMED by Cory Yoder of littlemissshabby.com.
Every time my niece is over, she snoops around, picks up any fabric that is pink or purple and asks if it is for her quilt. For months I've been telling her - you're on the list.

(The quilt model is my lovely daughter)

|See the letters in the purple square, on the quilt, her name is actually spelled out in consecutive squares, wonder if she will find it?|
The piecing is a bit uneven - I'm still working on lining up the back exactly the way I really want it. Maybe next time!
My daughter and I delivered the quilt while my niece was sleeping. We covered her with her new quilt and can't wait for her reaction in the morning. Won't she be surprised to find out she was at the top of the list?
