A New Project and Some Finishes

This is the fabric I bought to make a lap quilt for my sister for Christmas. She lives in Northern Michigan, where winter seems to last forever, and she's always looking for something to snuggle up with. The colors will go with the new living room furniture she got a few months ago. I'm excited to get started.

Okay, I can't wait until Friday. This is what I worked on this weekend. An apron for my aunt, with some coordinating dish towels and a pot holder.

This is a better picture of the dishtowels and potholder. My aunt is know for her cooking and baking and at 78 years old, she's still going strong. She is my mom's only sister, and all my life, she and her husband have been like a second set of parents to me, so I wanted to make something special for her that I know she will use. I'm pleased with how they turned out. This is a fabric basket and box I made from tutorials I found on line. The tutorial for the basket can be found at Pink Penguin and the tutorial for the fabric box is here Crazy Mom Quilts

Now I'll have to get busy and finish something else by Friday!!

Love the apron and accessories. They will be so loved.

I have wanted to try those fabric baskets for awhile now. Think I need to just get it done. Yours look great.
