    My mom wants me to find her a pattern for the"apple core". well I sent her the one I got from quilters cache and she said that it was ok but she thinks that there is an easier way to do it. well I have no idea. I looked at a couple different patterns but I just don't know what is easy and what is not.

    so if anyone knows of an "easier" way to do it than the one in Quilters cache I would appreciate any help.

    Thanx

    I watched a video where they made one using a tempate and fusible web. The background fabric would be your main color and they cut out the fused fabric in the shape of the apple core.
    When you lay out the fused shapes, the backing fabric becomes an apple core shape too... It is hard to explain, maybe someone else can do a better job :D:D:D

    Check out
    www.quiltsmart.com
    website, i have been working on an apple core quilt this way for two summers..(it stays in my camper,so i have something to do when away and traveling.)
    you iron it down on fabric.or muslin..your using 1 sided fusable, sewing it up,right sides together, and tunring it inside out, and pressing it down..is this what you mean?

    OK. After the Grandmother's Flower Garden and the Log Cabin, I'm going to do an Apple Core...or maybe I'll do all of them at once!

    I like how the circle will not fray doing it the way Eleanor does it. I would never have thought of that....sew the circle to the fusible and then turn them inside out, iron and sew.

    I actually find that it is an easy pattern to sew by hand. I have the template from Missouri Star Quilt Company.

    Missouri Star Quilt had a video that showed how to do them. I made one and it was really easy.
    I watched the video twice and went to it. I have the apple core templates from MSC in 3 or 4 different sizes.

    I got the Sissix die. It is not super hard to sew together but it is slow go. I did a wall hanging and after that experience I would probably not make one much larger then 50x60.

    I started an apple core quilt and it became a nightmare so I passed it on to my mother who I'm pretty sure has lost it! Not going to make another one in this life time! Sorry but they are not easy to put together!

    The ladies at the store are all excited about sewing curves with the "Curve Master Foot." I bet it would work great for the Apple Core.

    I recently recorded a show on Fons & Porter Love of Quilting about the apple core template.
    I haven't made it, but it didn't look too hard.

    It is not difficult to do, but you cannot speed thru the sewing......it's a very gentle curve and if you take your time it all falls into place.
