Quilt for Edie

What kind of quilt do you make a special 8-year-old girl who loves her dog (a terrier mutt)?

who looooves to swim ...

and read ...

...and color,

who loves Mary Poppins ...

... and the Beatles (the early Beatles)

(song titles: "Love Me Do"; "Twist and Shout")

lives in L.A. ...

... with a cactus garden out front; who likes to dress up,

take baths, play with her American Girl bathtub (complete with pink plastic bubbles),

and go to ballet class;

who takes vacations on a lake in New Hampshire;

who has a good sense of humor

and who has never, ever had a turtle?

What kind of quilt do you make such a girl? Why, it's obvious, isn't it?

P.S. Center of quilt was patterned after "Amy's Creative Side" new pattern, "Soiree".

P.P.S. Edie chose the colors herself! (Kona lapis, watermelon, parrot green, stratosphere, peach, sprout). Aren't they wonderful!

UPDATE: A girl and her quilt:
