For a Dear Little Girl

At last I have the binding on the baby quilt for Andrew and Amy's friends Meg and Ben, who are expecting a little girl on or about Labor Day.  I bought the fabrics in late April when I was in Richmond welcoming Nathaniel.  I pieced the top in short order and had begun hand quilting when I went down to welcome Elijah.  I took it with me but didn't sew a stitch during my visit!  Too busy holding and admiring the baby, I guess.  Then it seemed to take for ever for me to finish the hand quilting on it -- we've had so much going on.

Last night, after having spent much of the day machine piecing at church, I got the last stitches in and machined the binding on.  Today it hardly took any time at all to hand stitch that binding down.  We'll be going to visit Andrew and family in a few weeks and I think I'll just take it along rather than put it in the mail.
