    Was going to make a wall quilt for my kitchen, but this turned into an apron for the owner of the restaurant in our small town. Hope she likes it. Was hard to find a "model" for my apron, so I pinned it to the box fan in my living room, always looking for new uses for things. What do you guys think?????

    It's really cute! I love food fabrics. You have some brilliant ones there! The background makes the jars pop! Great job!

    I think the cook will be proud to wear and you are so thoughtful making it for her.

    I saw a quilt posted with the jars and really liked it too...a future to do list item.

    I also have the wood fabric that you used for the shelves...also bought some sky fabric from the site.

    Oh my goodness! How adorable is that???? Yes, I second that, make your wallhanging too.

    The name escapes me at the moment, but there's a new line of vegetable and fruit prints coming out or is out. I gravitate to the more realistic looking prints and yours looks edible.

    How perfect for the restaurant owner and so generous of you to make that for them.

    (Pppssttt---I'm the head chef in my kitchen and I can get my clothes awfully stained. Just sayin', that's all. :P )

    This is so cute! She is going to get tons of compliments! You should make a couple extra and see if she would sell them for you.

    It would have been a great wall hanging, but it's going to be a wonderful apron.

    That is so beautiful. I would love to wear it but then I would hate to dirty it. It is gorgeous.

    She will have soooo much fun wearing that wonderful apron. It is adorable and no one else has one like it. Your ears will be burning for month with all the compliments that she will receive.

    That is too cute. I bet if you made a couple more maybe with pockets you could sell them fast.
