A birthday quilt

Our gorgeous niece turned one yesterday! I can’t believe it’s a whole year since Poppet was born. In honour of her first birthday I made a quilt which I’ve called “Elephant Walk”

20150330-133412.jpgand includes lots of different elephants

20150330-133711.jpgin all sorts of colours

20150330-133815.jpgI machine quilted it

Happy birthday Dear Poppet!
