I think I am in Love with Matilda - you see she is the maker of the template that I used for cutting these Apple Cores and they work just the same as any Quilting ruler. They have holes so that you can mark the corners and matching points on each side to get those curves to play nicely together.
I only purchased the fabrics for the top of this quilt.
I found a big enough piece of fabric in the stash for the backing and binding, a cool blue/white 1/8" check and the wadding came from a trip to The Mothers.
Finished measurement approximately 50" square - but of course you can see it is not square at all.
It is a happy quilt, just in time for spring (oh, but somebody forgot to reprogram the weather and it has been grey and raining all day her hence the photos in the kitchen).
So there you have it - Apparently if I apply myself (and have lots of days off work) I can complete a quilt in a week!
