Pattern Description

As part of a local Art Quilting group, we were given the challenge to create a 12 inch quilt using the apple shape as a theme. I chose to dive into my collection of yummy velvets, corduroys and silks to create nine different types of apples. See the gallery pictures for the textures I was able to create.

This quilt is a bit of fun, you can complete in a day, and hang on your kitchen wall. To create further texture, the colorful apples are fused onto the background and satin stitched down.

Triangle Twist – a free pillow pattern

Pattern Description

Viewing the pile of offcuts I had left over from making the Flower Power quilt, I wanted something to complement the bed quilt. A pillow, of course!

If using these offcuts, you can actually make two pillows which is perfect for a queen size bed.

To cut my offcuts down to a uniform size, I used the Judy Hopkins ScrapMaster Ruler. It was perfect! The triangles were already in sets of 2 when they were trimmed off of the flying geese blocks. All I did was trim them down and sew together.

NOTE: This pillow can be made even if you don’t have suitable offcuts. Instructions are included in the pattern for cutting and sewing using any fabric pieces.

 

Skill Level: New, rotary cutting, basic sewing skills

Finished Quilt Size: 17 x 21½ inches

Fabric requirements:

  • If using offcuts, 60 pairs of offcut triangles. If not using offcuts, ½yd. (50cm) each of two contrasting fabrics
  • 10 inches (25cm) of border fabric
  • ½yd. (50cm) backing fabric per pillow
  • 1¼ yds. (1.25m)  fabric for pillow insert
  • Pillow stuffing to suit
