Aren't these panels just perfect for a cafe apron?

 They were given to me by my cousin - thank you Jackie! 

As soon as I got a copy of Patchwork Please by Ayumi Takahashi I thought of these panels for this project. I'm sorry to Ayumi that I didn't make her beautiful patchwork but here's my version of the apron and I'm joining in the
Zakka Along 2.0

I used some interfacing on the fabric before lining it and I only quilted in between the panels.

For the main fabric of the apron I used a tea towel (it works so well!!).

It came together really easily, I even left the selvedge edges on the ends of the ties, so it was super fast to do.

Unfortunately I only had a 5yr old helper to take a picture at the weekend. So here it is in all it's blurry glory:

Yeah and again:

I tried lying down, better but not great!

He made up for it though with these totally gorgeous shots he got of his sisters:
