Friday Progress Report

The last border in the Apple Core quilt was attached today.  Right now it measures 47″ x 56″, but it will be smaller once the edges are cut straight.

I think it took two or three times longer to pin the borders than it did to sew them.  This was the best picture I could get of the pinned border.  Doesn’t it look so strange?

While sewing on the Apple Core quilt top I also started a new leader/ender project.  The pattern is the Hemingway Quilt from Timeless Treasures and designed by Osie Lebowitz.  It is not on their website which isn’t a surprise since my printed directions are dated 2014.

The pattern calls for 10 1/2″ fabric squares, but I am using 6 1/2″ squares instead.  I found 30 squares (6 squares of 5 different fabrics) in my stash which will make a fun fast quilt.

Happy St Patrick’s Day
