Aprons on the Line - Blogger's Quilt Festival entry 1

Welcome Blogger's Quilt Festival viewers.  If you are new here, feel free to have a look around.

Thank you for considering my "Aprons on the Line" mini for this year's festival at Amy's Creative Side.  It was a lot of fun to make for my partner in the Spring Fling Mini Swap on Instagram.

My partner was a big fan of Lori Holt at Bee in my Bonnet, and I happened to have some of her fabric on hand.  Finding a pattern that would go with the vintage feel wasn't too hard either.  I had one of Eleanor Burns' books, Quilts from El's Kitchen (Quilt in a Day) (affiliate link).  It has some really cute blocks and projects in it.

In case you are wondering, YES, those are tiny hexies!

I can't imagine making a whole quilt from these size hexies, but some people do!

Thank you again for considering my quilt for the mini category.

I LOVE comments, they make my day! Sometimes I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
