    The previous one above is most of a completed quilt.

    Apple core (also called axe head) is a traditional pattern that is time consuming but not particularly difficult, if you preclip your seam allowances.

    My "Hearts of Trinity" quilt was raffled to benefit our local museum. While I made the individual 6x9.5 blocks with hand applique while I watched TV, These could just as well have been machine appliqued.

    Don't we all :mrgreen: this is one we have made, in my class, using odd strips and doing Quilt as you go, another favourite is using Quiltville's "Crumb quilting"

    I make a lot for Project Linus and the children love them 'cos of the bright colours.

    BTW QM I just love those scrappy blocks made, are you a follower of this Scrap system by any chance http://quiltville.com/index.html :wink:
