As my staycation neared it's end, I was able to complete the baby quilt with dresden flowers made from vintage aprons. I like to think of all those mothers and grandmothers baking pies and cakes or frying crispy chicken for their families, with all the love in their hearts, and wearing these aprons. The warmth of that love will surround a new baby or young child through this quilt like a grandmother's hug.
With some great music, a quickly prepared dinner, and some phone calls with friends, it was a pleasant evening. Stitching on the binding was completed effortlessly.
I've had this old nine patch quilt for many, many years. It was randomly tied and the batting had shifted and clumped. I decided it needed a "rebirth" so in a short time it was frogged.

The quilt top is still quite pleasing and has character (ie: wear and fading), and I hope to find it a new home with someone who will create beautiful things with it! First, today it will go in the wash.
