Scrappy Apple Wall Quilt

After making the strawberry and pineapple mini quilts a little while ago, there was still a little bit of space on the kitchen wall and most "experts" say things should be done in 3s when you decorate so I decided to make a small apple.


Just like I did for the strawberry, I used red and green scraps and made the background with Kona White.  The binding is an old print I've had in my stash forever!

For the quilting, again, like I did for the other two minis, I stitched paisleys in the red squares, dense back and forth lines in the brown, a small feather in the green leaf and pebbles in the background.


It finishes at about 18" square.  And I'm happy to report that this is finish number 1 on my Q2 FAL list.

Linking up at Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday and at Fleur de Lis Quilts for TGIFF.

  7. Great kitchen decor, Izzy! I have got to figure out that paisley design; a friend has a new baby girl named Paisley, so it would be perfect for her baby quilt. Your quilting designs are so clean and neat.
    Thanks for linking up with TGIFF. I am loving all the quilts on display and the visits, too.
