My first attempt at making an ipad cover

My nieces are going to be using ipads for school next term.  They each got an ipad 3.  Hailli came over two days ago and asked me if I could make a soft cover for hers.  She bought a pink (Otter) box to put it in for protection but she wants a soft cover to keep it in when she has to carry it in her back pack for school.  She picked out a couple of matching fat quarters from my stash and this is what I came up with.

I embroidered her name in the lower right corner.  Then I just let the fabric take me along for a ride.

I quilted it using 2 layers of Warm and Natural batting

I did the binding  and trimmed it to fit the ipad

this is the front...

this is the back

I added the pink velcro.
the otter box thingy she bought is the bright pink
this is the front opened!

this is the is closed

it measures about 8 1/2" by 12 1/2 " when complete.  I think she is going to like it.
