Apple Pie – free miniature art quilt pattern

Get creative with this art quilting project.

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 below for the various apples and textures I was able to create. To create further texture, the colourful apples are fused onto the background and satin stitched down.
