"M" is for Madison

This is a quickie quilt I made for a birthday party this weekend. One of my son's cute little kindergarten classmates, Madison, lives 2 blocks away but we never realized that. Now that we know I am thinking we will see a lot more of her. (She's a doll!) Brady said her favorite color is pink so I made this up for her party yesterday. It was a quickie- no piecing, just a little satin stitching and a border. These pics don't really show the colors well- the pink is very bright. It was dark out, but I finished it late and had to wrap it right away so I couldn't wait for daylight pics.

I did make sure the rick rack was sewn down really well. I stitched close to the edge on both sides so it won't curl after it's washed.

I just did straight line quilting about 3/4 of an inch apart. Then a striped binding because they ROCK.
I think she really liked it, and so did her mom. :o)
