"What am I going to do with these scraps?" I wondered after finishing a recent project.
Then, somebody mentioned that a little girl in my life
...could use an apron in her own size, because she likes to cook...
...AND that her favorite color is orange.

For a pattern, I could copy one of the many child-size aprons still living in this house. You never know when you're going to need one.
I used this one, a gift to one of my daughters from a friend in England.
Today I finished it, and here are the results:
Next stop: Park Slope, Brooklyn, New York,
This kind of traditional piecing is relatively non-challenging and therefore relaxing. This apron is one of two more traditional quilting projects I'm working on right now, for a pause between more challenging and scary work. I'm loving it!
