    Apple Blossom star project

    Showing off what I did today. The one thing about this give away pattern was fabric amounts came up short and I had to make additional strip sets. wanted to do something for spring.

    I squared off the quilt instead of having the octogon shape. Now it is a nice lap size.

    I also switched out one of the original fabrics I chose so there would be more apple blossoms.

    this quilt reminds me of my mom who always sang 'Don't sit Under the apple Tree' to me all the time when I was a kid.

    enjoy

    I may have to make both of these. Will trim it to square and add a few borders.

    very nice- summery nice to see when it's so gloomy/gray outside (we are having an ice storm- drizzly mix of rain & snow at 30 degrees-just enough to cover everything in a sheet of ice) so your quilt was (a ray of summery sunshine!)
