Storybook Quilt

I fell in love with this fabric the minute I saw it at Cool Cottons! So I bought it and made a quilt for my new little niece Elsie. I picked an simple pattern, tweaked it a little and am pretty pleased with the results… Not bad for a day’s work! :o)

After the shower I commandeered it in order to sew on the binding and finish the quilt.
