    My sons quilt

    My son came to me on Monday night and asked if I would help him make a quilt for a friend by Saturday. Took him shopping Tuesday then taught him how to cut out the blocks. We, I should say he started sewing the blocks together while I assisted with cutting since we were on a time crunch. He did a really good job but the blocks strips and the fact that Saturday was closing in quickly started stressing him out so I stepped in to help and finally got it finished it today.

    So proud of him. He picked the fabrics, the design and how he wanted it quilted.

    Heres is his friends quilt which she loves.

    Thanks for stopping to take a peak

    He did great. I think it prevents discouragement to lend a helping hand when needed. Nice work, Mom.

    Wow, a completed quilt in 3 days!? He did a good job but next time ask for a little more time.

    Nice teamwork! He's a very thoughtful boy (even tho' a little unsure of time management - that only comes with experience!).

    Wonderful quilt. So nice of your son to do this for a friend and you're a good mom to make sure it got done.
