Four Corner Apron

This is an apron I made yesterday. The pattern is by Vanilla House. It's called Four Corner Apron. The fabric is By Windham. It's their Harmony line by Rosemarie Lavin. Isn't it gorgeous!!! This pattern is quick and easy. The hardest part is cutting the fabric. I made a permanent pattern from a plastic tablecloth. That way I didn't have to get out all my long rulers each time I wanted to make an apron. I plan to experiment with sizes so I can make two from one cut of fabric. You do have a large leftover piece of fabric if you follow the directions in the pattern. I cut out four of these at one time and hope to make the others next week. One is a red, white, and blue that I am making for a swap on Fabric in Altered Arts. I am hosting this swap. It is my first time to host. So far eight people have signed up for the swap. Sign ups close on May 20th and then I assign partners.

I'm off to California to visit with my sister and her family. Tomorrow our plans are to visit the Nixon Library.
