Patchwork & Pinwheel Apron

Remember this fabric that I bought at Hancock's of Paducah yesterday(in the bargain bin)?I used it to make one of my "patchwork" aprons. I use the term patchwork loosely here... Anyhow, this is something I came up with after I started learning to quilt. My first attempt at one of these aprons was for a Tie One On Challenge. Here it is. Here's another. And another. I thought piecing interesting fabrics together would lend itself to aprons and it did! I'm sure there are more patchwork aprons out there, but I'm claiming this design as my own. I feel all artsty-fartsy and creative when I make this style of apron. No pattern...just fabric to play with, rectangles and maybe a triangle if I'm feeling sassy! Like I was today.This, I think, is my best effort apron-wise to date as far as the design. I love it...the fabrics, the colors, the prints. I love it so much that I think I NEED to make myself an identical skirt(minus the pinwheel pocket). Except I don't know how to do that.

This apron is officially going to be listed in my Etsy shop. Which is still empty. But not for long.

LOVE the color combo on the apron...and the pocket reminds me of my great Aunt IvaLee.
