cora's quilt

my first niece ever has turned 8 years old.
that means that she's getting baptized tomorrow.
cora is such a beautiful, sweet, smart, and sassy girl.
one that i hope my daughters can grow up to be like.

her baptism quilt arrived to texas on perfect timing, the day before the big event.
after some secret investigating, i found out her favorite colors;
light pink, hot pink, purple, and light blue.
so here's my interpretation of miss cora and her favorite colors:

there had to be ruffles for this girly girl!
i {very loosely} followed this tutorial.
of course i see flaws and things i would have done differently, 
but overall i am pleased with the outcome and hope cora is too.

 some darling models to try it out:

 and i couldn't resist throwing this picture in of my precious angel of love!
(for you, noel)

congratulations my dear cora bella! i love you SO much!
