Fabric Tuesday: Apple Mini Finish

I know I'm not the only one here who has done this.

You start something super cute. You get kinda bored with it, or you don't know what to do with it when it's done, so you don't finish it. It gets buried.

And when you find it again, you love it again and you finish it. And you now have the perfect idea of where it should go. And that's such a great feeling, to know you've got one more Christmas gift ready!

I used Lori Holt's pattern from her book Quilty Fun, only it was the free online tutorial back before it was in the book. Just used some scraps of fabric I had lying around.

I have a super special auntie who took us to an apple orchard in New York once. And we picked a truckload of apples. Even though she's in Florida now, I'll always associate her with crisp, fall apples, and beautiful fall colors. So this will go to her as a little table topper for her fall table.

Linking up, marking this one off the 3QFAL list - one down, thirty-two to go!

  1. I had fun when I made my row of apples for the big Lori Holt Row Along quilt. I was thinking of playing with the apples to make a door banner for my front door. Thanks for reminding me of it!

  2. Such a cute mini. I want to make the wall hanging size apple quilt in her book. Your fabric choices are great!

  3. I love these apples:)!!! It's been on my list forever.

  4. I absolutely love this! I'll be pinning it, if that's ok.

  5. I love the eaten apple in amongst the whole apples - really cute, well done!
