Block Pocket Apron – free pattern and quilt-a-long! June 29, 2011

I’m very excited to announce that my publisher, Potter Craft, has generously offered the Block Pocket Apron project as a free download that just went up today! This is one of my favorite projects – it’s beginning-sewer friendly, inexpensive to make, and super-customizable. You just need a pillowcase, small pieces of two coordinating fabrics, and a package of hem facing bias tape to get started! You can read, download, or print the full project instructions over at Scribd.

Even better, my quilting heroes at Fat Quarterly are hosting a Block Pocket Apron quilt-a-long party that will launch on their blog next Wednesday, July 6th with the full pattern, plus lots of photos, tips and extras! The quilt-a-long will last for 4 weeks (July 6, 13, 20 + 27), with a different part of the project covered each week.
