Little Red Houses and Apple Trees
I finished this quilt block this morning. This is my own design.
I kept trying to think of something to use up some of my buttons. And I love these apple buttons that belonged to a shirt I wore as a child.
There's a homeyness to making applique quilts because I'm using up fabric from clothes or various other projects. The roof and chimney are the bottoms of pants because I have to hem all my pants.
Actually, I really shouldn't be working on this as I have no time right now. I'll need to make 10 of these for a crib-size quilt. I'm interspersing it with blank blocks to cut down on the number of blocks I would need to applique.
