Quilt #12 :: Olivia's Elephants

I made this baby quilt back in 2013--five years ago! I am happy to report that with this post, I will have (finally!) shared all fourteen quilts I made the first year I started quilting. You can check out my 2013 virtual trunk show here, and you can find links to all my quilts here.

Back to 2013, I had a 4-year-old and attended MOPs at a local church. In my group that year was a young mom expecting her second child, a girl. I had just started building my stash, and was itching to use the adorable elephant fabric I bought at Joann.

When Olivia told us about her baby, I got to work. I started playing around in PowerPoint to come up with a pattern. 

I was pretty knew to matching seams so it seems like matches to have block that looked like this.

I didn't yet know how to make custom labels, and clearly binding was still my nemesis! But it was indeed, handmade with love.
