Design Wall Monday 03-13-17

I have started piecing the apple core blocks together into four patches.The curves are shallow and the sewing is slow, but easy.  I tried a couple different methods of sewing the apple cores together and found that pinning works the best for me.  Lots and lots of pins – between 7 -9 pins per curve.  The best part is that this Apple Core quilt was designed with a built in border so once all the pieces are sewn together the top is done.

The binding on Nifty Thrifty is my evening hand sewing project.  The goal is to have this completely finished tomorrow.  With all the recycled shirts and flannel backing, this will be a great masculine quilt for one of my grandsons.

    Love the colors in the apple core quilt – very pretty! And a great border design too!

      Thank you. I can’t take credit for the border design. When Bonnie Hunter was working on her tumbler quilt, she mentioned that she saw a quilt that had dark tumbler along the outside for a border and I decided to do the same with my Apple Core quilt.
