IN THE BEGINNING, AGAIN

I have a sweet friend expecting his second child.
They have a little boy, almost 3 and I made him a kwilt as well.  
 But for the little girl....
Mommy wanted the nursery colors to be pink, gray, cream 
and "elephants" in the design

Sew here's the new kwilt!
  
Love the modern feel of this one.
 The pattern is called Peyton and was a free design on the 
Bernatex site but I can no longer find the link. : (






Why did I name this kwilt "In the Beginning, Again"
Because on the label I have used the sonogram picture!

 I also did this for the little boy and the kwilt because he was first born I called the kwilt "In the Beginning"
The little girl is "In the Beginning, Again"
