Madeline Elizabeth's Quilt is finished

Yesterday was Quilt Day at our church. There were twenty-one of us with our sewing and knitting, come to spend a day working and talking and eating and laughing together. Marsha, Helen and I had been part of the set-up crew on Friday night and we decided to stay and sew for a while before returning home. I had sandwiched and tied the quilt on our snow day earlier in the week, and Friday night I pieced binding from 30s repros in pink, yellow and green, and then stitched it to the quilt. Did the hand-stitching last night while watching Netflix with Joe.
. . . .
I don't know when I'll meet Madeline. She and her parents live far away from Near Philadelphia, all the way in Texas. Proud grandfather Bill is a good friend and I'm going to give him the quilt tonight to take to Texas when he goes to visit. In announcing Madeline's arrival, this circus-loving man writes:
. . . .

Great quilt. The elephants are so cute in there. Love the birth anouncement - the elephants will go perfect for when Madeline joins the circus!

8 lbs, 10 oz... not that big! DD#2 was 9 lb 9oz and, at 15, she's barely taller than munchkin me... But I thought the quilt was perfect when I saw it "in person". Love her name!
