So, my Brother is serving his mission in Detroit Michigan, and my sister who is an awesome cook sends him cookies and goodies all the time ( once a week) and then my Mom sends him great packages all the time as well. After I sent my lame-o packages of stuff I find in my house or stuff I find at the dollar store, I decided I needed to send him something meaningful and nice! So Chris and I starting working on a quilt for him and since its sooo cold in MI and I sew quilts all the sudden! Here is the almost finished quilt, the only thing missing from it is the white fabric squares that had a letter ( or picture if you crystal) on them from each sybling. I sewed the letters on the big squares. He is going to die when he sees this, because before he left I was not so domesticated, he was the one that sewed me a purse one year so he will be so excited to have a warm blanket full of notes and love from his family. I can't wait for his email that says he loves it!
Side note: I'm making another for my grandparents with notes from all the grandkids, Ill post pictures of that when its done. But if anyone wants a great gift for someone special and wants me to sew it and say you did it, let me know we'll talk.
