the panda quilts: #10: triangle elephants

The mister's sister is expecting her first child in December...which means I'll have a new niece or nephew soon! This was another gender neutral quilt. I picked out the raindrop print first, then the elephants...and everything else was matched from my stash (some leftover Kona solids and one of the Denyse Schmidt Joann prints). 
After drooling over so many triangle quilts on flickr and pinterest, I decided it was time I finally made one. I got a Creative Grids 8" 60 degree triangle ruler and went to work...It was a super fun quilt to make and I'm eager to work on another triangle quilt soon.

 amanda lives in indiana, so a few weeks ago i made the 3-hr drive to attend the baby shower. i wanted to see "pregnant amanda" and it was an added bonus to be able to give her the quilt in person!
