Little Green Apples Is Happening All Week

It is always such a treat to see how creative everyone gets with the Sew It - Show It blog hop challenges. It boggles my mind how different our ideas are. From bags to quilts, you continue to inspire me every month!


The challenge:

Sew something with green or apple fabric (or a combo of both!)

Little Green Apples


Wind and clouds everyday make for rough photo sessions. 



In case you're wondering (or not), I did have the song "Little Green Apples" stuck on a repeating cycle in my head. Not a bad song to have in my head, but over and over is a bit much. It has been sung by
many different people but to show my age, here is Dean Martin singing it. I loved his voice!




In reality, I don't like green apples...way too sour for me!
But this was a fun quilt to make as my answer to the "Little Green Apples" challenge.
It's green and it has apples. It's a win!

You can find the "Little Green Apples" Pinterest page HERE.

  3. Gorgeous quilt! The green really pops with the black and white. I've never heard that song before, although Dean Martin is just slightly before my time.

  10. This quilt is so perfect to open the hop. Your green apples look so real and the fabrics you chose to go with them really sets them off.

  13. That's an adorable quilt - perfect for the hop. Generally, I agree, green apples are just too sour but... When I was a kid, we used to take/steal green apples to eat. My cousin, who was only18 mos when he had polio, and he loved green apples. We would pull him in the wagon and pick the wagon full of green apples - him eating as many as he could while the picking was just right.

  19. What a cheerful little quilt! I love lime green. It reminds me of Spring. (I'm with you, though; I don't like to eat green apples unless they are cooked.) Enjoyed listening to Dean Martin, too.
