Happy 100th Birthday jelly roll race quilt

My husband's Great Aunt just turned 100 last weekend.  I didn't have a lot of time to make her a quilt so I decided on another jelly roll race quilt in purple batiks.  The quilting is just freeform overlapping curvy lines in a purple variegated thread.  I trimmed it down to 50" square since she is a rather petite woman, but apparently I forgot just how small she is.

She is sooo cute peeking over the top.  Standing on her tippy toes even though she is wearing 3" heels. 
You just gotta love her, 100 years old and still doesn't leave home without being dressed to the nines with make-up and heels on.
One of my husband's cousins asked her secret to staying youthfull. 
She answered Estee Lauder... Hilarious!
