Charlie's Baby Quilt

I love baby quilts because they typically go together quickly. and most of the time the recipient of the quilt loves having a gift personalized to their child. So I jumped at the chance to make a quilt for our friends, Katie Jo and Eric. When my husband planned our anniversary trip this year, he built in time for us to do a quilt shop hop. (Because that's how awesome he is.) We visited 9 quilt shops between Bloomington, Indiana and Frankenmuth, Michigan.

Katie Jo and Eric requested a quilt that was white and gray with pink and yellow. Preferably with elephants. I knew the colors wouldn't be a problem but I was pretty excited to find the perfect fabric at the last quilt shop we visit - The Front Porch in Frankmuth. (Don't I look excited?!)

Here is the fabric...

I decided on the Pebble Path pattern that I saw on Pinterest:

I wanted to  show off the elephants. I'm not sure I completely achieved that goal but I was happy with the final result.

And so was baby Charlie!
