How About Them Apples?

Red Delicious
This mouth-watering lap quilt was finished in early January. I used the Accuquilt apple core die that I got for Christmas. Cutting was a breeze...I can't imagine how long it would have taken me to cut out this shape by hand! Notches helped make sewing together the pieces much easier. I did have to slow down a bit to maintain accurate seams. No racing at full speed on this one.

Red Delicious finished out at 43” square. Red prints and a cream/black modern geometric are alternated for the center. Black fabric with gardening tools is used for inside border, backing, and binding. Outside border is a red burlap print. I quilted a straight stitch along the curves for the interior, and used a decorative serpentine stitch with black/grey/cream variegated thread to accent the red border.


This beauty should remind me to eat apples more often. It's said they keep the doctor away, you know. 


An apple a day keeps anyone away
if you throw it hard enough

Why not upset the apple cart?
If you don’t the apples will rot anyway
