First Finish of 2018

I have now finished the quilt for my OS baby girl.  It is smaller than many I have made, but I am happy with how it turned out.  I probably should have added a border to make it a little larger, but was going with the pattern and so didn't.

I did some fussy cutting for the larger elephants -- a first for me.  Well at least to succeed at it.  I tried with another quilt I made but the images I was fussy cutting were too large for the blocks so they got cut off.

I used a striped grey and white fabric for the binding.  I had wanted to use a mint polka dot but decided that would be too much green -- however, I'm still second guessing myself on that choice. 



Here's the quilt.


It's not very big - 36x48 - I think.  The next one will have to be bigger.   Here's a picture of the diaper cake that my YD and I made for the baby shower ..
