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.
