An Apple a Day

I was reminded of this quilt a little while ago while stitching with a friend. It was started last year while on vacation, it even made it to a post. The apple cores are hand pieced. The piecing was completed while on various planes and trains. I'd even sandwiched and started quilting it. I pulled it out last week while at our guild coffee meeting. There were only 4 apple cores left to quilt! I'm now very happy to say that it's done and will shortly be hung up on the quilt line.

This was my first attempt at hand piecing. I'd recommend a pattern like this for starting. It was so forgiving of my less than perfect 1/4 inch seams.

Hi Catherine,
I don't know how to reply to comments yet :) You'll just have to come over and see my little kit.
Your apple cores look great! I have a few questions for you about handpiecing. See you tomorrow.
