One by one I am getting the quilting and binding done on the stack of quilt tops I pieced this summer.
Today's finish is called Pick of the Crop. I started with a length of fabric that featured single apples in frames of sticks. These were cut down to a standard size and then bright red, yellow and green scraps were stitched on in a Courthouse Steps arrangement.
I used solid red and a golden tone to build sashing with cornerstones.
I quilted by first stitching an outline around each apple and then filling everything except the apple backgrounds with a medium meander.
The binding is a mottled coppery-brown that matches the backing fabric.
