I blogged about the quilt top here.
I considered straight line quilting but decided my go-to meandering loop would add even more softness to this cutie.
The elephant backing fabric is an organic cotton and is SO lovely!
Notice the plastic chicken in this last picture....a contribution from this cutie who we are dog-sitting this week! Nola is a sweetheart!
I think the soon-to-be-new parents will be pleased with this quilt!

Oh by the way, Happy Valentine's Day! This is not such a big day in my house. My husband's historical logic for downplaying this day is something along the lines of "I shouldn't need a special day to show you how much I love you." Instead, for many years he gave me an ice scraper for Valentine's Day. How romantic. But I guess after 37 years of marriage, he may be right.
Linking up with Amanda Jean's finish it up Friday party.
PS Speaking of cuties, did you see my post yesterday about why we quilt? I know you all have a story or two like this one!
