Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Then I was coloring with the kids and noticed an apple that would fit perfectly into a 5 inch block. Red was the color of the month and I had plenty of red and maroon fabrics. I also needed a hand work project while waiting in the car line to pick up the kids. How about some applique apples? I drew my lines and glued them to the backgrounds and had plenty of hand work for a few weeks. After I put the quilt together, I took the plunge and decided to hand quilt it. I had plenty of encouragement from the ladies who link up with Kathy's Sunday Slow Stitching and soon I had a finished quilt. This quilt finished at 36 inches square. I love how this quilt came out and look forward to displaying it in my dining room in the fall. This just reminds me of my home state of Vermont and all those wonderful Macintosh apples that I have picked over the years with my Mom and family. Good times and some great memories. Not to mention all those yummy apple pies =). Please excuse the Miss Kitty socks in the picture - my daughter Emily has to be in all my quilt pictures one way or another.
Head on over to the Bloggers Quilt Festival and enjoy the quilt link up party.
