Mystery Quilt Along Reveal!

I’m so excited to share with you my MYSTERY projects from this past quarter:). I usually make quilts for my sewing fun, but this quarter I decided to spice things up by choosing to make aprons instead!

Strawberry Licorice Aprons

Why did I make two you ask? Well, of course I needed a new apron for myself, and I have a secret friend who will be getting one of these as a MYSTERY surprise later this year. What a surprise it will be!

This apron pattern is called Strawberry Licorice by Sew MuchGood. Isn’t is adorable?

This pattern is one that comes in paper sheets that need to be taped together first.

I made copies of my pattern first so I could tape and cut without ruining my original.

It was kind of like putting a puzzle together, but I matched the notches and taped them together. I ended up with a large pattern that worked perfectly.

I stitched up the ties in no time at all. Then it was on to the appliqué Ric Rac. I made the mistake of not using the fusible web to secure them in place. (That’s what I get for not reading the pattern thoroughly)

I did have a trickier time keeping the fabric from shifting, but after only three attempts, lol, it all came together in the end:)

I am very, very pleased with how this apron pattern sewed up. I especially like the MYSTERY red fabric mixed with these SWEET strawberries.

And of course, what would a finished project be if there wasn’t a fun little photo shoot?

Taking this photo with the self timer, and running up to the counter to look like I am always just hanging out on the counter with a spatula in my hand was the type of thing that sitcoms are made of! lol😄

Really, I recommend this fun pattern. It would be cute with the stripes and dots that are featured in the pattern picture, but my red MYSTERY fabric and strawberries is just right for me!

Now, lest you think I ONLY used this MYSTERY fabric in one project, I want to share just another picture or two of a few other projects that I was able to SNEAK my Mystery Fabric into.

Be-Attitudes Quilt-

I thought it was sneaky using the mystery fabric as one of the wings in the Be Grateful Block. I stitched it up with leaf veins.

Delilah Quilt–

I was also able to add a piece or two of fabric to one of my Jen Kingwell Delilah Blocks.

This little block was made with templates. I still have quite a few to make, but I am glad I got this one done for the MYSTERY reveal:). I think my life may slow down after a bit so I will be able to finish this wonderful quilt. Oh, well, it can wait.

I hope you have had fun reading about this wonderful quarter’s MYSTERY QUILT ALONG. I am excited to head over and see what the other detectives reveal in their sewing rooms!

  1. I really, really LOVE that fabric with the strawberries and flowers… so pretty! It’s no use me making myself pretty aprons, as I’m a terribly messy cook and I always have stains and splatters all over the front of mine…

  2. OMG that apron is too cute!! I love the tea flowers and strawberry fabric combination. I never think to wear an apron but I may have to get the pattern and give it try 🙂 Also love how you used the mystery fabric in other projects!

  3. I love all of the projects that you made using your mystery fabric, but especially the apron! Of all the things I’ve seen, I have actually never made an apron, even though I love them…I think I should look into a pattern and try it. Nice job!

      1. I have lots…but they are almost all inherited from my mom and aunt, so I’ve never needed to make one. I definitely want to give it a try though!

      1. Wow! That is impressive Kathy! I usually buy a little bit here and there just o keep things fresh. I usually buy things on sale or just a 1/2 yard or so. That way I keep things fresh in my sewing room. But I totally understand taking a break for a while. Fabric is so expensive! If you join us, remember, the project does not have to be large:)❤️❤️

  4. The apron is adorable! I can totally picture you racing the timer, spatula in hand, hopping up on the counter… I would have needed a step stool to get onto that counter and you? You captured the perfect shot though and look great! Fun post.

  5. Hi Tracy,
    Perfect use for this fabric, and especially for you! HAHA – I love the self-timer picture, especially with the spatula. The little tea flowers could easily be the strawberry blossoms prior to the fruit, and the colors go together so well. Really nice job! Happy Saturday! ~smile~ Roseanne
