Airplanes for Baby William

Brent and Tonya decorated the nursery in red, white and blue with an airplane theme. Brent's father was a pilot for American Airlines and a model plane buff. So it was to be an airplane quilt for Baby WIlliam.

I finished the quilt Thursday night, to be shipped out for machine quilting by Jo Richards of "Spotted Dog Quilting". And Baby William was born Friday morning, October 21st at 9:11, the same time I was shipping out the quilt!  A little early (6 weeks)  but weighed in at 5 pounds, 15 ounces. Great weight for a preemie and he's beautiful!

The quilt was made using Jo Morton Fabrics and the airplane block is "Lucky Lindy" created after Charles Lindbergh's nonstop solo flight from New York to Paris in 1927.

We are so happy for Brent and Tonya ... William Anthony, God's blessing to you!

Life is Good!

Hugs,

Elaine
