    Thanks everyone,..it is my first effort at designing something from scratch...the blocks are 12 inches and the size is 47 inches by 54 inches. You have been so kind and supportive with all your comments. I got such a thrill reading them and it has given me confidence for the next one now!!
    I just loved the fabric with the elephants on..the Fabric Shack did have it in pink as well originally but had sold out when I went to order, they only have the pink in flannel now. I didnt know how that would look on top of cotton blocks, so I stuck with the cotton one. Pink is so pretty though Sigh!

    And a great first design you've done!
    At that size, it could even be a small adult lap quilt.

    It's a very one-of-a-kind piece.

    I'm thinking 'wall-hanging' - just because it is so unique.

    I like it a lot.

    I really like this top. If it was me, I'd keep it as a wall hanging.

    love the fabric! You have done a beautiful job. I agree that it is probably most fitting for an older child or teen.

    Thanks again everyone, I am so delighted it worked out so far. I am going to applique the elephants tomorrow and then sandwich this quilt. I will post up a better photo when I have finished it!I probably dont want to do too much FMQ-I guess I am a bit worried about overworking it now

    I vote to put minky on the back and let a child love it to pieces. I'vestopped making 'baby'quilts per se. I feel they grow out of them too fast. I'd rather the quilts be something they grow into as opposed to grow out of in a couple of years.

    It's adorable. My daughters and all their friends would love LOVE it for their babies. Truly I may steal your idea if you wouldn't mind!

    Beautiful quilt, but I don't think it's for a baby. I love the colors. Great job.
