Greetings! Today I’m so very excited for your to meet …
the Apple Blossoms quilt!
a brand new pattern celebrating my new Mabon fabric collection! Don’t tell the other quilts … but this one just might be my favorite out of the whole Mabon bunch! She was the crown jewel of my Quilt Market book this year for good reason!
Finishing at 93″ x 93″, this quilt is exactly the type of quilt that I loved designing and loved even more as I was piecing it! It’s really, very visually interesting to look at. The individual blocks give the illusion of a triple-layer star … but when the blocks come together, the background fabric creates this stunning secondary “art deco” or architectural motif so that you get a multi-layered design with the quilt blocks, and the quilt as a whole!
Now, you know that scrappy quilts just really aren’t my thing … because my brain is too much of a control freak to just place fabric randomly. But this my kind of scrappy project! Each star uses two fat quarters, plus a fat eighth, and once you’ve cut your pieces, you can assemble each star block in about 90 minutes. When I was piecing my own quilt, I was also working on five other quilts at the same time (over a period of just about five weeks), so finishing each individual block gave me a nice, little “instant-gratification” rush of finishing something. Plus, the majority seams nest nicely with this project and there really aren’t too many points to line up, so it felt like each block came together really, really quickly – and without pins for the most part!
And finally, those Apple Blossoms blocks finish at 21″ x 21″, once you’ve added those last little points, so if quick and easy projects are more your style, you can turn a single block into a throw pillow, table topper, or mini quilt!
