Well hello little apple core quilt. How are you curved piecing? You look so pretty and innocent, but we both know how naughty you are.
Yes, you look old fashioned and cozy. But do old fashioned and cozy things make people say bad words?
You lured me in with your cute little template. It was so fun choosing pretty fabric and cutting out all of your pieces. But then you showed me your true colors. Like with all the pins I had to use (I hate pinning). And then there was the time(s) that I thought I sewed a curve so nice and pretty, only to discover that I sewed a big ol' stinkin' tuck into the bottom seam (hence the bad words).
I really hope you're proud of yourself.
Oh who am I kidding, I can't stay mad at this punky apple core quilt. She's not completely at fault, it was my first bout with curved piecing and all. And it was actually kinda fun. I made her for my very dear friend for her birthday; this friend is worth a king sized quilt worth of pins and tucks and bad words. I just wish I had the endurance to have made it larger. I've seen bed sized quilts in this pattern, which now that I know what goes into one, actually makes me want to faint.
Seasoned curved piecers, now is your time to laugh out loud. It's teeny! But there's love in every stitch, so there. :)
I love Kate Spain's Fandango fabrics. You can still get some on Etsy!
I do want to make another apple core quilt now that I've gotten my feet wet with this one. Only this time I will make the apple cores HUGE! That'll teach 'em!
Now it's back to my stack of quilts in progress. Some need quilting, one needs borders and quilting...ok maybe two need borders and quilting. And of course let's not forget the Pips quilt that I started when I shouldn't have. It's so fun and easy I couldn't help myself!
Have a wonderful spring quilting week! x
