Blogger's Quilt Festival: Apple Core Quilt

Sad, isn't it, that it has taken another round of the Blogger's Quilt Festival to inspire me to post again? In my own defense, I have been very busy having (and nursing) a new baby and moving house. Before all the baby and moving excitement, I did have time to finish this little quilt for Project Linus. I used the Apple Core pattern from WonderArc Designs to do this, which meant lots of circles (but no crazy apple core shapes to cut out or sew). It's not the most beautiful quilt because some of the details of the technique still escape me...but I hope some little girl will like it!

Here's the front. I primarily used fabrics someone donated to our local Project Linus chapter (along with a few from my stash so it would be big enough).

And this is the back. It's flannel that a friend who knows I make Linus quilts gave me to do something creative with.

Enjoy the festival! I'll try really hard to get some more quilts made and blog posts up before the next one rolls around!

  1. I think this is beautiful and some young lady will be thrilled with it.

    Congrats on the new baby and the new house.

  2. Very nice! I like the apple core style. :)

  3. Oh, cute! I love how this turned out! The pinks are so fun too! Good work! And how cool that you have little project linus labels!

  4. That's a pretty little quilt !
    I was excited to read that you had used the WonderArc method, as the designer of that tool, Mary Ellen Johnson, is a close personal friend and I used to quilt with her at the time that she came up with this concept. Don't feel bad about not understanding it totally........I was there through many of her samples, and still don't understand it !

    But, she did good with the ruler and the designs and so did you !

  5. This is a lovely quilt. I'll have to look up the Wonder Arc - I'd love to try something like this without cutting out cores.

  6. Ficou lindooo.As cores se combinaram,muito bem.Adorei.Esta tecnica é muito legal e não é dificil de fazer.Um abraço
