Hanging out Together

 Mom and I decided to try out my new Accuquilt die for the apple core pattern.
 We cut out and pieced the wall hanging in no time!  Mom enjoyed using the Accuquilt system because she is not a fan of the rotary cutter!  (The fabric is from Keepsake Quilting.)
 Then we trimmed the edges flat to add some borders.
 The pattern suggested leaving it like this and maybe for a full sized quilt it would look okay but we opted for a more framed look--->
 and then we added two skinny borders.  Ahh, now it looks just right for the wall!
 All the horizontal blocks were fussy cut from the cat fabric using the Accuquilt, too.
 Once the borders were on and pressed, we loaded it right onto the frame.
In no time, the quilting was done using a loose meander pattern.  Now the quilt goes to Mom to finish the binding and hand sew it down!  It was a great day together doing a project!

  3. What fun!

    I have an apple core template but have only ever used it to mark quilting lines!

    BTW, I'm selling the quilting frame -- downsizing to a house with no garage means some things have to go! I'm selling my piano too!

FROGS...

 As I approached the finish line for the  second pair of the Tuxie Love socks,  I heard that funny voice that whispers...it's awful...
