Upside down Little Apples

I was given 2 seconds to take these pictures before the other fisherman returned to see my husband holding up a quilt.   So those cute little kids are playing ring-around-the-rosies upside down all over the quilt. 

The trickiest part of this quilt for me is spacing all of the colors and fabrics evenly.  It took me a ridiculously long time to lay it out and stare at it before it got sewn together.
And in other exciting news….we caught a fish!  We only had to go fishing 19 times but hey…at least it’s a big fish.  It’s a darn good thing too because my sewing machine is getting dusty.

Finished Plus Quilt

Love the way this one turned out.  This pattern definitely calls for simple quilting, and straight lines here and there did just the trick.
It is a very simple pattern, but if you need the math done for you for 6 sizes you can find a pattern here.  
The back is this fabulous print from the Denyse Schmidt collection at Joann’s.  I bought 2 yards of this the first time I saw it  because I love it so much as a back…or pillows.
I really should have ironed this before pictures.  Oh well.  :)

1 hour

1 hour of free time,  1 layer cake, and 1 large drink of choice (plus 2 bathroom breaks)…
…yields 42 cute-as-a-button blocks ready to be sewn into a quilt top. 
The fabric will be available in September…I snagged this layer cake at quilt market.  The pattern is Easy Bake…the same pattern I used with Aneela’s last fabric line (you can see that quilt here).  And yes…it really did only take me an hour + 6 minutes to cut and sew them…it’s a fast stack n’ whack quilt.  Plus I’ve made it before. :)
