Apron Strings is a sweet little 12" x 32" table runner made with, you guessed it, a charm pack and ⅔ yard of a coordinating fabric -- perfect for when your charm pack collection becomes a bit unwieldy.
And Apron Strings couldn't be easier! It features simple piecing and machine quilting -- great for a beginner or a weekend project.
I made Apron Strings with the beautiful "Hyde Park" collection by Blackbird Designs for Moda and I love the fabrics! Somehow they manage to be both colorful and muted at the same time. They give my quilt the soft, nostalgic feel that I was going for.
But if you're wondering how Apron Strings would look in a different color palette, here's another, brighter version made with "California Girl" by Fig Tree Quilts for Moda:
Love this one too! It's got a summery, kitchen-y, retro vibe that I really like -- also nostalgic, but in a totally different way.
