As I have posted about previously I am trying to accomplish making a "charm quilt " out of my Applecores quilt. I have always wanted to make both!
Fabrics attached to a joining fabric were not considered a charm quilt....usually One Patch blocks were used.....clamshells, squares, triangles, hexagons and Applecores which I was interested to learn is also known as SPOOLS or DOUBLE AXE....who knew!
Some lovely friends have once again surprised me by popping 5 inch squares in the mail to add to my collection and aid my challenge.
I am using only Botanical or Floral fabrics in mine just to give it an extra dimension of difficulty. Anyway I found these little pearls of information interesting and thought you might too. Call me crazy but I love knowing that what I am stitching was stitched by needlewomen before me.
So today adding more to my pile.....
I have also been stroking this favourite piece of Christmas French General fabric and decided that it needs to be used so I will be playing with it to in the near future.
DD gave me this book to read......could not put it down! Loving our talented Aussie authors lately!
