Aprons, Aprons, Aprons and More Aprons!!
Last night I attended the first class of the Apron Block of the Month Club at Cozy Cottage Quilt Shop in Brea, CA. Oh my goodness this is going to be the cutest quilt ever!! The apron blocks are just adorable and each one is so unique, vintage theme, and right up alley. I am going to start working on the first apron block this weekend and will post when complete. Lori Eklund, the class instructor, was very personable and had some great tips to share with all of us! There were ten of us that attended the first class - great group of ladies; I cannot wait to get to know each of them and to share our completed blocks at the monthly classes.

I met Kris, the owner of the Cozy Cottage Quilt Shop, Kris and her staff were so sweet and very friendly. The Cozy Cottage is a lovely place and the warm welcoming atmosphere will for sure guarantee your return in the near future. Everywhere you turn you will find a "packaged kit" that is just calling your name, patterns and more patterns, and of course tons of fabric (the selection of 30's fabric was one of the best I have seen).

Of course, my first visit to this wonderful shop would not have been complete without taking the time to browse every inch, cubby, shelf, and item in the shop (one, two, and maybe even three times around). I was thrilled with all the goodies I found and had no trouble filling up my shopping bag! I am anxious to return and search for what I may have missed the first time around =)

I live in Delaware but signed up for the Apron BOM online. I can't wait to receive my stash and start working on it. It's a great quilt!
