Apron made for special order-Tutorial when I get back from vacation on a potholder

It all started with a lady ordering my one of a kind aprons. I never know what I'm going to end up with when they are finished. Remember these blocks we did a quilt along with 2 1/2" strips and I had some left over. If you can see in the picture above I used them in the apron, the front block is pleated and the side blocks are gathered with big pockets covering them almost. Added a scalloped border, loop for towel and a button for the potholder. I guess this is a post of using up left over blocks you might have.
The towel is with a vintage towel and an image of an old pattern stitched to it, gathered at the top with a button added to keep it from falling out of the loop.

Told ya I can't get enough potholders made. This one is from a block cut up and sewed back together like a crazy quilt.

Keep Stitchen'
