Red, White, & Blue Apron Swap

My Red, White, and Blue apron is ready for swapping on Fabric in Altered Arts. Our aprons are due in the mail by June 20th but mine will be early since we will be out of town part of June. This is another of the Four Corner Aprons. The Fabric is "Roaring 20's" by Bev Prolux for Chanteclaire. I just love the reproduction fabric. This fabric was purchased a Granny's Attic in Campbellsville, Ky. The Four Corners Apron pattern was also a Ky find. I had seen the apron and wanted the pattern. In March, my cousin and I went into a beautiful little quilt shop, A Quilter'sFabric Garden, on the square in Franklin, Ky and there on a dress form was one of the aprons. They had offered a class the day before. Of course, I purchased the pattern. I was so excited to find the pattern and also find such a great quilt shop. The buttons are vintage buttons by Lansing. Their original price 10 cents. Of course, I found them at the thrift store!

The Red, White, & Blue Apron Swap was my first time to host a swap. We had eight signup for the swap. I assigned each person a partner and they will exchange with their partner. We're already discussing other holiday apron swaps. I think it would be fun to have an apron for each of the holidays.
