Pattern Description:

We offer a Try before you Buy download at http://www.quiltmoxie.com/?page_id=460 which is your recipe of the materials needed to make your own Gale Apron.

I met Gale, a retired New York State Trooper and "longarm quilter extraordinaire "who enjoys fishing and golf, through a mutual quilting buddy, Lynne (who is also an awesome longarm quilter). Every quilter needs an apron and came up with the idea for an apron sporting a fish tie for Gale. That was the beginning of what is now your Gale Apron pattern.

Once our classroom testing began, you can imagine that our Quilt Guild Members (see photo**) had their own opinions on what an apron should be. The Gale Apron ePattern gives you the choice of options galore...including built-in potholders.

**Pictured are some of the Chateauguay Valley Quilters Guild members from left to right: Sandra Georgina Ann Jessie Janet Nancy and Ariana.

One of the many versions of the History of Aprons which is most likely based on the poem by Tina Trivett is included with the pattern for you to enjoy.


The Gale Apron pattern uses quilting and flat construction sewing techniques to produce a reversible apron.
