Block Pocket Apron – free pattern and quilt-a-long!

June 29, 2011 at 11:21 pm | Posted in book news, log cabin quilting, project extras | 1 Comment

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.

  1. Oh how fun. That might be something I can actually handle getting done (I HOPE). It’s that time of the year to get started on Christmas gifts too so this could be the kick in my backend to get started doing something other than reading blogs.

    Thanks for the heads up.
