super secret stalker

last month in the Magic Valley Modern Quilt Guild we did a super secret stalker swap and i was lucky enough to get Candy as my partner. 
the only problem was that the stalking was kinda hard because she doesn't have any online habits... no pinterest, no flickr, no blog, no twitter, nothing!   
makes the stalking a bit on the hard side...  luckily, i was able to get some info on her and decided to make her an apron.  she works in the cafeteria at a local elementary school and wanted a sturdy apron...  
this i can do.  
i took out my very favorite apron, a pink one from Williams-Sonoma and made a pattern with it.  i used my very favorite fabric that i got from Kelli at drygoods design online and whipped it up for her lickity split.
as you can see from her grin from ear to ear... she was pleased.
i gave her some of my hello pilgrim fabric and a few spools of thread also.  she was happy!  notice her sucker name tag... her name is Candy... ;)
and this little love block was for kz...  she wanted us to make her blocks that were our dreams for her. 
she is such a sweet girl and so talented! 

the love i found makes me happy every day and i hope love finds it's way to her.



  1. Sweet photos, looks like your apron really went down well!

  2. Great Apron!!! And how clever of you to use your favorite apron to make a pattern. Good sleuthing too! Love the LOVE block!!!

  3. What a pretty apron. Just goes to show that practical doesn't have to be boring.

  4. How sweet! I'm glad you're enjoying your guild! The LOVE block turned out splendid. The apron is great, too!

  5. I really want to make a "love" block. So fun!

  6. Ps. I am having a little give a way. ;0)

  7. How awesome!! I wish there was something like that here in my little town! I have not one sewing "local" friend, it's so sad.

    Thank goodness for the online sewing community!!! :)

  8. Aww! That love block is so cute! I need to start adding those to quilt backs ... Or other not so sweet sentiments! Next throw quilt I make needs to have "dude..." or "stop farting" on the back. Yup, I'm looking at you miss puppy!

  9. Awesome! I love that apron. It does look sturdy but also really cute!


thank you...
