I finished up my sister's plus quilt yesterday during my little guy's nap. I had started it 8 days before, so I think that's pretty great! I'm usually not so fast doing a whole quilt from start to finish.
This quilt was made from leftover fabric from aprons that I make for my sister, who has cerebral palsy and is not the neatest eater. When my Mom asked me last Sunday to make her a quilt, I said I'd be able to if I postponed the new aprons I was planning on making. Well, last night after the kiddos were in bed I decided to see how much I could get done on the aprons anyway, and I am happy to report that I finished all 5 that I had cut out! It was speed sewing the whole way, which works perfect for these because they will be used and used and used until they wear out.
My little guy had to get in this picture with one of his cars:
Here's my munchkin practicing using her scissors to cut the wrapping paper to wrap up the aprons. She helped wrap the quilt first. We got everything off to the post office, and it should arrive by the end of the week! (Insert huge sigh of relief here.) I'm so glad that I was able to make this quilt for my sweet sister, as well as the aprons that she needed. Some of her older ones are wearing out. I hope she loves them!
