Good Morning, Quilters!

It’s always sad to see the school buses round the corner…

It’s Back to School here in Minnesota-a bit earlier this year.

Honestly…it’s mixed emotions for most of us--It means more quilting time!!!

Let’s kick off the school year with a Delicious Apple!

A NEW GRADING SYSTEM

Starting today, I’ll be giving each tutorial a Grade–Beginner, Easy or Intermediate

See all the FREE MOTION QUILT Tutorials HERE

I plan to grade ALL of the tutorials so that you will be able to search for your skill level.  (This will take some time.)

***Did you know there is a “Search” box on the right side of every page just above my portrait??***

Also, if YOU disagree with a grade…Please let me know!

Today’s tutorial:   The Delicious Apple =  EASY

THE DELICIOUS APPLE QUILT TUTORIAL

Begin by drawing two parallel lines.  (The lines in this tutorial are 1-1/4 inch apart.)

Begin stitching on the bottom line.  Stitch a fat letter “c” –brush the top line and end below the top line.

Stitch straight up to create the stem.  Stitch across two-three stitches then back down to the drawn line.  Apple, FMQ, LKennedy

Add a leaf with a small vein. Apple, FMQ, LKennedy

Finish stitching the stem, then stitch the right side of the apple by mirroring the left side.Apple, FMQ, LKennedy

When you reach the bottom line stitch a slight wave to create the bottom of the Apple.Apple, FMQ, LKennedy

Stitch on the bottom line back to the right to create the next apple in the chain.Apple, FMQ, LKennedy

Or add a little something extra!Apple, FMQ, LKennedy

Now wasn’t that EASY?

Makes a great border on any quilt, or computer cover, or school bag, OR

Combine it with the EASY as PIE tutorialand you have a theme going!!!

With the kiddies off at school…

Back to School

AlphabetHello Quilters!

Are YOUR students back to school?

Here’s a little inspiration from the Windham Fabrics booth at Quilt Market 2015.

And if you have a little spare time today…they have a huge library of FREE QUILT PATTERNS…

Here’s one I really like….Pencil Box--It recommends DOODLING!!

See you tomorrow, when we’re ALL back in school with a fun Tuesday Tutorial!
