When I started working on this Apple Core quilt for my daughter, she still wasn't aware of quilts. So, she would call this her apple blanket. Just a little background on why this quilt when into UFO state. When I started this quilt I was so excited after watching Jenny's tutorial in YouTube.
The fabric line I'm using is Little Apples by Aneela Hoey. Perfect harmony right, what could go wrong. Back in December 2011 when I started working on this project I didnt have a 1/4inch quilting foot and I started the apple core curved piecing on the machine and found it very difficult and out of control. Felt like hand piecing would go much faster. But the whole concept of hand piecing just felt like its going to take a long time. So, this project went to the back burner or should I say came to a complete hault.
I took this project up again when I joined the BMQG in late July and wanted some hand work to do during out monthly meeting. This just turned out to be perfect and realized that it doesnt take that much time to do 1 row. Probably I would say about an hour or so.
So, in the last month I have got 3 more rows together. Yippee!! So total 8 rows are done so far, just 3 more to go.
I'm planning to do a 11 rows and 9 across in red and green. And then an inner border either an 1/2 apple core or 1 1/2 apple core on all sides in red on white fabric. And outer border probably in another white print.
Here are my rows so far:
