More Lilly Aprons

On my May 20th post, I asked your opinion to a question.

I have 3 daughters and I wasn't sure which one should be given the Lilly apron (by Busy Bee Quilt Designs) I had just made.
My oldest daughter was getting ready to move and could use a house warming gift for her new kitchen.
Daughter # 2 is expecting a baby and this apron would go comfortably over her growing tummy.
Daughter #3 is having a birthday.
Many of you responded that I should make 3 aprons and give one to each girl.

Secretly, that is what I had done, but I didn't want to spoil the surprise because they read my blog.
Last weekend I went to Phoenix and gave Amy this pink apron. She has always loved the colors of these fabrics.


Aubrey has always loved blue. I knew these colors would match her new place. In fact last Saturday night as we were unpacking boxes in the kitchen she hunted for a spot to hang her new apron.



Elizabeth's is our college student attending the University of Utah, and her birthday is tomorrow. We are heading to Salt Lake to spend the day with her.
She actually helped me pick out this fabric a while ago. I told her it was for an apron for her older sister.
Mom's aren't supposed to be sneaky. Sorry girls.

Love you!

You are a good mum, I tried to order the pattern when I saw it on your blog, alas they don't do international. All your versions are great.
