    Finished sewing on the binding

    I made this throw for my midwife partner in appreciation of her warm welcome into her practice.

    How wonderful that you are a quilter/midwife. Tried for several years to convince my business partner to let me teach her to quilt but she was into other things. She went on from our childbirth education business to become a wonderful midwife with her own large, popular birthing center in Georgetown TX and I retired!

    That quilt is a great way to begin a successful relationship with your new partner. Good wishes to both of you.
