When RJR Fabrics contacted me to see if I would be interested in joining in on the #whatshaderu blog hop with the Cotton Supreme Solids I was in immediately! Take a quick minute to go and check out all the gorgeous color options in the Cotton Supreme Solid collection! Definitely drool worthy!
I decided to have a quilt featured in August which is the beginning of apple season. Of course – I had to go with an apple themed quilt!
My quilt ‘Cameo Flagstone’ all started with the inspiration of the ‘Apple Flagstone’ block I made for my 52 Twisted Traditions Quilt Along. RJR Fabrics sent me a great miture of quarter yards of different greens, blues, browns, and reds to work with to make my apple quilt dream come true! I mixed in some prints from my stash with the solids.
I put all my slightly modified Apple Flagstone blocks together and then I turned the on point! Yes – this was going to work! I decided to create a horizon line in the corners of each strip on point.
I improvisational pieced together the fabrics to complete the quilt and I’m so happy with how it turned out! I had to share this picture with our new orchard cat, Spiff just taking a stroll by as I photographed my new quilt. I mixed in browns, greens, and blues into my sashing to create the look of branches … it’s abstract but still pretty cool. I’m so happy with how my horizon line turned out!
My aunt, Barb Raisbeck, of Quilts by Barb did the quilting on this piece and it’s absolutely perfect!
I also had a great time mixing in some of the fabrics I purchased at quilt market from the sample sale – including ‘Picnic’ from Cotton N Steel which has a great apple print! It was just perfect! I fussy cut a bunch of them and used them in the cornerstones of the sashing. Just a little bonus you get to see as you study this quilt.
And guess what!? I get to share the goodies with you!
