Sometimes you see a quilt and you immediately know who should have one just like it.
This apple quilt was that quilt.
My DIL, Susan, needed this quilt so I made one for her birthday. This is how it looked before quilting and binding.
I included a special label on the scrappy back.
The apples are a variety of reds with a green a several yellow ones thrown in for interest. The backgrounds and sashing are a variety of shirting prints.
The backing is red . . .
with a green stripe down the center.
This is a cozy quilt. Once again, I machine quilted it as I continue to practice. It's not perfect but it is okay.
It has a scrappy green binding including the left over fabric from the leaves. All the leaves and stems were hand appliqued onto the apples. I really like the half square outer border which is a mix of apple fabrics and background and sashing fabrics.
I think she liked it. Doesn't it just look like it belongs to her in her home? This was a very fun and satisfying project.
