I've made one of these apron pockets before, but the last time the cross was appliqued and this time she wanted it pieced. How is it that she can do this without any pattern at all, but can't piece her own pockets? One is a sixteen-patch and one is a nine-patch with a border, which would have made it a pain to write instructions for. I used 1 1/2" strips for both and then just slapped on whatever border size I needed to bring the cross block up to the same size as the other block instead of actually doing the math. Compared to those ruffles and darts and everything else, these are about as easy as it gets.
