Pattern Details

Pick a peck of apples or cherries at the height of the season, or just make a wallhanging and enjoy them all year long. Use one or both in the same wallhanging. Instructions include some interesting tricks for very skinny applique stems! One of my Sewfasst(c)Techniques is used to make the sawtooth border. This technique means you sew, slice, dice and sew, slice, dice again, without cutting individual triangles. Colors are for reference only, you can make your own creative color choices.

In the picture, I am wearing one of my "qweaters," that is a quilt-sweater combination, with knitted back, sleeves, and quilted front. In the background is the Quilter's Newsletter January 1999 cover quilt, my Snow Crystals quilt. Although I have been playing with fabrics and threads since childhood, I did not make my first quilt until 1969. By 1982 quilting became my passion. I have had several years of in-depth study of quilt history, design and techniques with some very traditional and non-traditional quilt teachers. One of my quilts won an Honorable Mention at the American Quilt Society in Paducah, KY and have had eight quilts juried into that same show. Four of my quilts have also been in the International Quilt Association in Houston, TX. I also have had numerous patterns and books published. My book "A Thread Runs Through It," is based on my one-woman play, which has been an honor to present to guilds. Some quilt classes I teach are on the web at http://academyofquilting.com/. My website also keeps me busy. For almost 15 years I have been presenting an Applique Block of the Month at http://bdieges.com.
