I’m so excited about how the first round of our Round Trip Quilts travelling bee went! For the first round, I had the pleasure of working on Christina’s quilt. Christina blogs over at Wips & Tuts and she asked for a fall/autumn themed quilt. Here’s the center she sent me to start with:
She also sent a cute little fox but I forgot to take a picture of him!
My mind immediately went to the beautiful fall colors at Brown County State Park since Christina is from my home state of Indiana where I was born and raised. But then I thought maybe I should look more at fall in my new home state of Georgia. And here in Georgia, we love to go apple picking in the fall.
I have always loved apples (they were always a favorite snack as a kid) so I love getting to go up to North Georgia every fall and pick apples. And we’re always eating everything while we pick too!
So I decided that Christina’s quilt needed a border of apple blocks!
I am in love with how this turned out and it actually makes me want to make a fall themed and colored quilt for myself! Let’s go ahead and add one more thing to the ever growing list of quilts I want to make!
I think the apple cores in the corners are my favorite part. They are my husband’s favorite too!
Christina is having each of us make these little signature blocks for her quilt too. Look how tiny it is compared to my rotary cutter!
I hope Christina likes how her quilt is taking shape so far and I can’t wait to work on Chelsea’s quilt for round 2!
