Look at this, it's Madeline's Good Fortune . . . .
but it's not my Madeline, it's Melly's Madeline!!
I am so excited, someone has made Madeline's Good Fortune! As I mentioned on my 250th blog post, I get the most emails about Madeline's Good Fortune, questions about the patterns (Madeline and Good Fortune Schnibbles by Miss Rosie's Quilt Company) the fabric (French General for Moda) quantity of fabric (see right hand column), the size (108 x 108), the amount of time it took to piece it . . . . You name it, I've answered it, more than once, and am happy to do so, because that's what quilters do, we share. I end each note the same, "Please drop me a note when you finish your Madeline". This week I got a note from Melly saying she had made Madeline's Good Fortune.
Melly blogged about her project here, it'a a great read, not just because she made MGF, but her thought process and how she went about making the quilt is a lesson to anyone too scared to try something, and it has a happy ending!!
I'm so excited about someone actually making that quilt that I've added a section to my blog to link to ALL the Madeline's that may get made. So if you've made one, or have seen one somewhere, be sure to drop me note and I'll add it to the list!!

It's a weird feeling and hard to explain, knowing there's another Madeline out there, but Melly is as in love with her quilt as I am with mine. I think it's the ultimate compliment and could not be happier.
Great Job Melly and Thanks So Much!!
