{A Quilt for Ellie}

Making of Ellie's Quilt

Ellie's Quilt

My tiny niece, Elizabeth Kate was born a liiiiiiiiiitle early,... that over achiever!  She arrived July 18, a full 6 weeks before her due date!!  She is doing great and at home with her mom & dad already!

I guess I was lucky that I started her quilt early enough that all I had to do was trim up the scalloped edge and put the binding on.  I used the Sweet Pea pattern from Camille's book, Simplify.  This is the first quilt I've made from her book but have wanted to make these sweet scallops since I got it!  I LOVED making the binding for this one!
