Check out the Quilted Kitchen items and Vote!!

I have entered a Christmas Apron I made in the Quilting Gallery's current contest.

I was asked to test the Christmas Kitchen pattern in July of 2010 by the designer Ruth Blanchet.  When looking through my stash of fabric I discovered the Folded Star block and the coordinating fabric.


 I decided this was an opportunity to create something and reduce my stash at the same time.  The mice and reindeer add a whimsical quality to the apron while using what I consider the colors of Christmas, red, green and white. 

The bib has been quilted diagonally and then the Folder Star was attached using a satin stitch on the sewing machine.  The red and white bias trim and straps tie the bib and skirt pieces together and make me think of Candy Canes.  The neck strap can be adjusted for length; waist can be tied in a bow in the back or brought to the front to add an accent.

I donated it to the Western Reserve Junior Service League.
