Not My Quilt and More

I've got a fabulous APPLE CORE quilt to share today!
It's approx. 60" square and was made by my very good friend, Mary Miller, a talented quilter who makes all kinds of quilts from art quilts to traditional.  And she sews at the speed of light, which often frustrates me!

For a while now, Mary has been fascinated by apple core quilts.  She has hand pieced and hand quilted between 10 and 12 lap size apple core quilts.  When I got a larger size apple core template (6") in at the shop, she decided to try it out and this is the result.  All of the fabrics are Asian prints, most probably from Kona Bay Fabrics.  I donated a few swatches, but most of it came from Mary's wonder stash.  If you would like to see more of her work, check out her FACEBOOK page Aunt Mary's Quilts.

In other fabric news, Ruth, Sally and I spent a little more time with the fabric paints last week.  My new favorite method is the scrunching method.  This is a super close-up of the fabric as it was drying.
Here it is, dry and pressed flat.

True confessions time.  I already have a new string quilt in the works, since I did the demo at the guilt guild two weeks ago.  THEN, I was browsing through blogs the other day and saw another fabulous idea that I can't wait to try.  All I will tell you at this point is that it involves diamonds!
