Veggie Quit and Child's Apron

I just finished up some projects that have been occupying my time (more mentally than actually).  I'm still such a novice to sewing so finishing a project, especially a quilt is a HUGE deal for me.  I've started a few but never finished since the binding is so intimidating.

I got the idea from Purl Soho and fell in love with the pattern.  I didn't buy it from them but hand drew the veggies myself and then used this lovely graded Merimekko fabric that I found from the Crate and Barrel outlet shop in Chicago.  I also changed the lines of the quilt doing a free motion for the top part- I'm impatient with somethings, what can I say.  After weeks of sitting on this almost completed quilt I found a You Tube tutorial on binding.  Wow, this was so easy- I COULD DO IT.  I did, and I have to say, it was easy.  I can't wait to get started, and finished on my other ones now.

 I absolutely loved the graded fabric and bought it just for this project.  I have enough to make 3 more quilts and hope to make one for the kids room.

I also copied my sister-in-law's apron she made for my kids, but used twill tape for ties and neck. 

Both these will be going to my daughter's school today as gifts for the school.
