With fall finally in the air, I finished this Apple-licious Quilt up yesterday, but because of all the rain I did not get a picture of it until now. The design is from Lori Holt's book, Quilty Fun.
I will be teaching the blocks in the book as a BOM starting in January, so I am trying to make some of the quilts featured in the book. I made the apples at our retreat in July, but did not get around to quilting it until Saturday.
I love all the bright and happy colors. I quilted it cross hatch style about an inch apart on both diagonals. It shrunk up quite a bit and measures 31 x 43 inches.
I bought a large red gingham from the $5 flat folds at the fabric store a few weeks ago and used it for the backing. The red gingham makes it feel very country and cheerful. I am going to start piecing my Farm Girl Vintage blocks this week. What are you up to?
