Apron Strings

Apron Strings on Lake Tahoe.

I have loved this pattern by Sweetwater since it came out.  

I wanted to make this quilt for a college twin size bed (extra long).  Thank you to the ladies at Elaine's Quilt Block, in Salt Lake City, they helped with the adjustments.  This fun quilt store sits at the base of the beautiful Wasatch Mountains and has some great deals that come to you if you sign up for the emails.  Also, the first person there each morning gets to pick "the bolt of the day", which is discounted at 30%.

The pattern calls for 1.25 inch strips.  I used a jelly roll @ 2.50 inch strips.

I sewed 2 triangles to a pre-cut square of the bella white.  

After both were sewn to the white square, I cut down the middle.  This process seems to cut down on bias issues.

quilt stats:
80" x 68" unwashed
fabric is Reunion by Sweetwater
Bella White
quilting is straight line and meandering squares on the border
batting is Warm and Natural
