Apple Harvest #4

This quilt is from the same book as Apple Harvest #3 and was meant to be a pillow cover.  I changed it into a wall hanging.  It is done with the batting exposed behind the top fabrics for the apple and leaves.  All those edges were pinked and quilted down to the backing with a running stitch for the quilting.

Apple Harvest #3

My Apple Pie Mini Quilt comes from the book Two-Hour Mini Quilt Projects by McKenzie Kate. The sunflowers and pie crust are added on to the quilt base for more dimension.  Buttons add more embellishment.

Apple Harvest #2

I have made three of these apple wall hangings, two for friends who decorate their kitchens with apples and one for myself.  The pattern was from a very old Debbie Mumm book.  It's a good way to use scraps.

Apple Harvest #1

September means displaying my small apple quilts.  This one is done crazy quilt style with hand embroidery stitching on the seams.  I liked the results so much that I made two pumpkin wall hangings in the same style.
