My quilt in Quilter’s World (October 2009)

Believe it or not, it was but a few days ago I received my October 2009 copy of “Quilter’s World“, along with my quilt featured in the issue:

May I present to you “Baskets Full of Apples”?

Baskets Full of Apples is the first fall themed quilt I made. For some reason, I always end up making springy quilts. So, I hope Baskets Full of Apples marks future fall quilt opportunities for me!

I attempted to add a little more interest to the border, and am pleased with the result:

The quilting is done over a polyester batt simply because I had never used a polyester batt prior to the quilt, and wanted to do a little experimenting! I used to work in research at a wind tunnel. So, sometimes, I am simply overcome with the need to experiment and try something new just to see what happens.

The quilting was done free-hand, with no prior marking:

Fall is quickly upon us who live in the Northern Hemisphere. My mind has drifted to pecan pies, apple crisps, chili…. mmmmm!

Thank you for popping by. I always appreciate your visit as always. Please leave me a comment so that I can visit you back. Have a great day!

A parting note: Quilt kits are available from Pine Tree Country Quilts. Quilt was made with “An Apple A Day” fabrics by Benartex.

  1. You just got your issue? I bought a copy a couple weeks ago and saw your quilt. Very nice, love the apples. Maybe with some practice my quilting will look almost as good as yours. Congrats on having your quilt in a magazine.

  2. Wendy, yes another congratulations on your publish. I love the quilt and not to mentioned the superb quilting. I will have a look to see if I can get a copy in Australia – Hugs Natima

  3. A stunning quilt Wendy! The colors are really nice. And the quilting is beautiful too. I think I need to pick up the magazine so that I can say I ‘know’ the person who designed this quilt. What did you think of the polyester batting? I’m always used Warm and Natural (or most of the time), so I’m interested in your take on it.

    Anyway, your quilt is stunning and I can’t imagine how you get this all done with a little one!!!

  4. Another beautiful accomplishment Wendy. I like the added interest to the border, too. Enjoy…
    I can hardly wait to get up to the Northwest the last week in September to enjoy some real fall weather :0)

  5. Wendy, so glad that you finally got your quilt back! It is beautiful. Love the quilting. I’ve been away for a few days, so I am just now getting caught up in the blogging world :-)
