    I love it. I have aprons my Nanny made for me and for herself. I made one for my Mom with a (dresden) turkey on it.

    Thank you all for the wonderful comments! I wonder if your children remember? I bet they do! Yes they are real clothespins 1-inch in size!

    I love it! My grandma always had an apron on when she was at home. Ironic how they are "back in style" again. I really like how you mixed the batiks and traditional apron fabrics, and those mini closthespins are simply adorable!

    I am a channeling my "inner Grandma" by having a line to hang clothes on and wearing aprons myself. I collect them.
    Some are too fragile to wear.
    I love this quilt. It is a perfect modern rendition of an old cozy idea and just made me smile.

    Bravo!!! I love the originality of this quilt, and the execution is spot on!! The 3D aprons are gorgeous and I love the HST blocks behind them that mimic beams of sunlight coming through the trees. Well done!!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Hey, MY mom and nana wore aprons and hung them on the line in New England, too! Are we related? lol Seriously, your quilt is gorgeous! Nice job!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    I agree with everyone else. This is a great idea and a wonderful creation. If it were in a contest, I would give ti a blue ribbon...or a purple!

    What a beautiful quilt. I also remember my Mom and Grandma hanging out clothes, and now in the summer I wish I had a clothes line for my sheets. They always smelled so good. Thanks for sharing your delightful quilt.

    Great memories. Maybe integrate the "Apron" poem somehow. I have a pic of my mom and me ... her wearing a bib apron and me in a feedsack sun dress. Oh, yea, see my avatar.

    I remember my g/mother wearing an apron all the time too. I have some of her aprons too put away somewhere. Always thought I would like to do something with them, but can't bear to cut them up. Thanks for sharing. Beautiful quilt.
