    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.

    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.

    Bravo! The young man deserves applause for designing a lovely quilt, making most of it, and of course the initiative for wanting to make a quilt for a friend!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I am really impressed with his work and dedication. What a nice young man to want to do something like this for a friend. And how wonderful of you to help him get his gift completed. The friend is a lucky person.

    Kudos!!! From start to finish you showed what a good mom you are - and it is also apparent in what a kind and giving young man you have raised. You could have said no - there was not enough time - or discouraged him in other ways - but you supported what he wanted to do - and then offered the guidance and help that was needed when it was needed. Great story - and great cooperative quilt. Lucky girl too.
    Of all the things i've lost, i miss my mind the most.

    What a nice gift for his friend. I'm sure she loved it.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Sounds like you have raised a great kid , hope he knows what a great mom he has to help with this on short notice. I'm sure his friend (are you sure it's not a girlfriend?) will love her new quilt.

    What a wonderful gift for his friend! I love the first pic with him. His long hair, jacket hanging off his shoulder, leaning on the table as he presses his seams. What a moment in time!!

    Great quilt, beautiful colors! You have a wonderful son, and his friend is very lucky. Hope he knows how lucky he is to have a loving mom!

    awesome stuff... cherish these times together. My sons are now 29 and 26 : (
    they grow up too fast.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    crush time sewing. My one daughter is particularly good with that. "Mom, I need a costume by Saturday." Thank goodness they have not presented with needing a quilt in a couple of days.
