My Apples

It is week 2 of Lori's Sew Along Blog Tour.  This week it is Twinkling Stars hosted by Nana and Company.  Amy has a sewing and fabric sense I've admired for a long time now.  Her creations are simply amazing.  She's pretty perfect if you ask me.  You really have to check out the fabrics she chose for her twinkling stars.  They are so dreamy.  Great job Amy.
I am making a quilt with my sisters for next year featuring Lori's apples.  So I spent some time working on my apples from last week's block hop.  I've made 80 apples so far.  I will probably have left over apples to share with my sisters, if they need them.
I had so much fun picking out fabric.  I made apples of lots of colors, even imaginary apple colors.  Like aqua.  
Some of the apples are whimsical.
Some of them are in my PKM fabrics.
There is even a couple brown apples.  Hey, a bad apple here or there won't spoil my quilt, right?
I was having too much fun to stop making the apples.
And the apple core apples are the most fun of all.

What cute apple blocks! I especially love the apple core with the flowered center :) I guess you're going to make Lori's apple quilt, or even a design of your own. The apple quilt is on my short list :)
