Max's Quilt - Elephants and Apples

Elephants and Apples - for my newborn cousin, Max!
Patchwork Backside
 My cousin's Jonathan and Lauren in Michigan (also Jonah's parents of the Super Star Quilt fame) welcomed baby Max in early March - so I quickly got to work on this fun and funky baby quilt to welcome him to the family. I used Jacquie Gehring's Modern Dresden Plate chapter from "Block Party" for the Elephant circles on the front.
Who doesn't love these Elephants?
or this great "boy" color palette?
For the back, I went with a random Patchwork design with a big MAX, of course! I love the mix of the peacock blue with the apple green and greys mixed in. Sew Modern once again came through with some great graphic fabrics, including a few of Denyse Schmidt's Flea Market Fancy re-release.

Max's quilt was delivered today, and his mom texted me that he LOVES it! Well, he is a very smart 2 month old after all. I hope he spends many a day and night cuddled up with his very own Elephant and Apples quilt.  Enjoy Max, Jonathan, Lauren and Jonah!
