You can read other posts about this summer-long project by typing “crabapples” in the Search box in the upper right corner of this blog page. Suffice it to say, this has been a fun project which used lots of itty-bitty scraps, “Nine Patches” from a guild exchange, and yardage of favorite fabrics. The quilt was designed by Bonnie Hunter and published in her book, Adventures with Leaders and Enders.
I quilted heart-shaped leaves with gold thread in an all-over, freehand design. This quilt will live on my sofa as a daily reminder to celebrate Autumn! I, for one, am happy for cooler temperatures and look forward to colorful foliage in my neighborhood.
Hmmmm, what shall be my Fall quilting project? Any suggestions?
