Block of the Month~New Apron Book!

 I have been working on BOM's.  Can YOU guess the name, if you are right, you may win a prize!!! It is so much fun! Here are a few of the blocks:

Can you guess what the names are??

I'm also working on a new book, the title most likely will be "Sewing Vintage Aprons."  This will be a book dedicated to sewing 10-12 or more vintage aprons from the past. I have a collection as well as many photos of vintage aprons, so I'll be taking my collection, my mother's, and  my  grandmother's collections and creating my own version of the vintage apron. They will look a lot like the originals, but will be sewn with upbeat prints and embellishments from today. Some of the prints may be reproductions, but they will still be fresh and new!

I'm having so much fun picking out prints and putting them together with the perfect apron pattern! The picking of prints for a particular pattern can be challenging for some, but in my book, you'll see how easy it is to do!

Here are some sneak peaks of my progress, so far!

Remember...these are only some or part of the aprons to get you excited to buy the finished apron book. The book will be released in June 2011!!! Don't you Love the large pockets on the last apron snippet?
I'll keep you posted on the progress and upload more photos soon! Happy piecing!
