This year, I’ve been participating in the All People Quilt UFO Challenge. It’s been a really good experience so far!
I shared all my projects at the beginning of the year and where I was at on each of them.
The number selected for February was 9. Here is what I wrote for that project:
9- Mom Vintage Apron: Not a quilt, but a project my mom asked me to do years ago. Making an apron out of a vintage table cloth that belonged to my grandmother. I think I’ve been avoiding this one because I’m scared to mess it up.
I had an idea in mind for the apron I wanted to make, using the center floral print of the tablecloth into the bib section of a full apron. But as I looked at the apron design, I realized that it wasn’t really going to look as nice as I had hoped. In order to make the apron well, it would have needed some darts. And darts would have messed with the floral design of the tablecloth more than I was willing. So, I decided instead to make my mom two half aprons. One with a smaller yellow strap and one in red. I did save the center section of the tablecloth and am going to try and incorporate it into another kitchen project for her at a later date.
The number selected for March is #7. I’ll share my progress at the end of the month!
Happy Sewing! ~L
