    Aprons on the Clothesline

    I made this quilt of the fond memories of my Nana and Mom wearing aprons! I remember them hanging on the clothesline to dry in the wonderful cool New England Breeze!

    Very pretty. My Mom always wore a housedress and an apron with a big pocket and crammed it with lots of things. She only took the apron off when she left the house.

    Oh! I LOVE this quilt!! Are those real clothes pins? I remember hanging clothes out on a line to dry and taking them in after the Texas sun had bleached the whites even whiter! I wonder if my children even know what a clothes line is (was) now that we live in the city! I'll ask them today. Thanks for sharing this beautiful creation!

    Just so adorable. Brings back fond memories because my Mom always wore a pretty apron. You also used my favorite colors.
