    Our guild has an annual challenge and this year we were each give an apple core template to use any way we want, except that we have to use it as is.... we can't change the size.

    I took the easy way out because I don't have the patience to sew a bunch of curves. I used the whole template for the apple, then used the inside curve to make the leaves and the stem.

    Now, do you think it need a border?

    That is really pretty! Your seams line up so perfectly, and the apples are adorable. I'm new and no expert, but I would put a border around it. I think solid red or solid green would look good.

    I'm with Sharon-NC needs boarders. A narrow green (not any larger than 1"), followed by the red polka dot.

    Beautiful, I love the crisp look of the cores. Borders would be nice.
