How to Make Patchwork Aprons

| Quilty | 347

Join Mary Fons and guest Erika Mulvenna to learn how to make patchwork aprons! Erika has a collection of around 75 vintage aprons—wow! She shares some of those along with a few of her own in this free quilting video. Erika’s aprons are super duper easy and are a great way to use up fabric scraps! Erika used a dresden plate pattern on her apron. Look for the aprons in the September/October ’13 issue of Quilty!
