The Idea Comes to Fruition

This idea has been brewing in my head for awhile now and today I found time to execute a rough draft.  I'm pleased with the results.

In an effort to try and use up a lot of my stash, I've been trying to come up with ideas that would use large chunks of fabric with not a lot of difficulty involved.  Just sew and go.  I have been making aprons recently and I thought "what about a quilted apron"?  So, today I sat down and tried it out.  I grabbed the first two pieces of fabric scraps that were already on the table and this is what I came up with.

This was already loaded on the longarm, so I resorted to the Bernina  . . .

and did some free motion quilting.

And this is how it turned out.  For a first try, I'm loving it.
