Summer Apron Swap

I had a little trouble with the package I sent for the Summer Apron Swap. I must have been distracted while addressing the envelope because I forgot the city and state. Fortunately, I had my return address on it so it came back and I put it back in the mail today. I hope my swap partner hasn't given up. At least this time, I had enough sense to get delivery confirmation so I will know when it arrives.

Part of the swap was to send a dish towel/tea towel. It could be purchased but of course homemade is much nicer. I bought a nice checked towel from the quilt shop and used leftover apron fabric to applique on it. I think it turned out nice.

The apron I decided to make is reversible. Here is one side of it. See the two pockets on the bottom and the cell phone pocket on the top. It was be a great place to put your IPod or MP3 player. I might make myself one since I always use my MP3 player while I work on my longarm. I don't think I can quilt without listening to a book. Thank goodness for NetLibrary where I can download books for free.

Here is the other side of the apron. Same positions for the pockets. The fabric is called Fresh Squeezed by Moda and is definitely a "summer" type of fabric.

The last item for the swap was a recipe for a non-alcoholic beverage. Cute idea.

I have not yet received my apron from my swap partner. Hopefully it will be here soon.


  1. I've never heard of net library. Can you really download books for free?

  2. Hello, Melinda! I got my apron! Thank you so much. I love the patterns.
    Your quilting is beautiful.


I would love to hear from you. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you have a question.
