...That is what I made last weekend....one for my me and one for my Mom's birthday on Sunday.
I made them exactly the same using the same fabric. I love the colors in this fabric, it has been one of my favorites from Urban Chiks. I combined the Heirloom Bark, Chickadee Bark, and osnaburg for the patchwork on the pockets. The actual apron body is canvas lined with solid brown. I got the fabulous tutorial over at Creative Little Daisy. Her tutorial was easy to follow and the aprons did turn out exactly like I hoped.
I really like how they turned out and this was my very first try at patchwork/quilting.....and I do believe I could get used to it! I felt a little intimidated at first, but once I got the pieces cut, arranged and then sewn together like I wanted them to look, I was really happy. I thought keeping the seams perfectly in line and the quilting stitches straight would be a slow process, but with just the tiniest bit of extra attention, it turned out just like I wanted.
Now, my mind keeps drifting back to Angry Chicken's book, Bend The Rules Sewing. She had a fabulous quilt idea in there....one I would love to make for my girls beds :) I do believe I'll be giving it a try before much longer!
