Hospital Sketches - Love Apple

Block #3 in Barbara Brackman’s (Civil War Quilts)  “Hospital Sketches” sew-a-long is done.I adore the Love Apple block and I always enjoy making it. This was by far the largest I had ever done (18" finished), but it was a lot of fun. 

Once again, I am having trouble capturing that sweet pea green background fabric. 
My friend Meliss Swanson brought hers to our last meeting and we had fun showing them off. These two photos are a better representation of the color of my background. Meliss is machine appliqueing hers and they are spectacular! I love how she pieced 4 blocks together for her background.

You can see more of Meliss' work on the Hospital Sketches Facebook page (here)


It's not to late to join in the fun!

I love this block, someday hope to make an entire quilt of these. Amazing how the camera sees some colors so differently than our eyes. It's a constant struggle to photograph some of mine accurately too.

Thanks for your kind words Wendy, this applique is a bunch of fun even though it is a steep learning curve from piecing. It's a blast to walk this journey together with you and the other talented artists in the group Hospital Sketches so generously offered by Barbara Brackman. Happy sewing.

I love the purple and the blue! Your block is beautiful. I don't know if I've ever appliqued such big flowers before. What will block four be like??

Cathy said...

I adore the little bit of blue with the purple you put into your block of Love Apple. So pretty!
Fun to see how different, yet alike, your blocks and Meliss' blocks appear.

I love the way people are making the blocks "their own" with colors and design changes. Thanks to you and Meliss for sharing your blocks. Great work!

Fabulous fabrics and colors. Your background is so springy. Are you not doing them potholder style?

Barbara said...

Another wonderful block and great fabrics! Lookin' good, Wendy!

So smart to put that little "dot" on your love apple--I'm so worried about my raw edges popping out of where the leaves meet. I agree that these are huge blocks! They are a kind of hard to work with, but your block looks beautiful!

All these Love Apple blocks have been making me considering making another quilt with these sorts of blocks. Love them so much.:)

Good work, Wendy. I just got started on the Periwinkle block before company arrived. So I have had to set it aside. I hope to catch up soon.

I had HIV for 6 years and i never thought I would ever get a cure I had and this made it impossible for me to get married to the man I was supposed to get married to even after 2 years of relationship he broke up with me when he finds out I was HIV positive. So I got to know about Dr. Itua on Blog Site who treated someone and the person shared a story of how she got a cured and let her contact details, I contacted Dr. Itua and he actually confirmed it and I decided to give a try too and use his herbal medicine that was how my burden ended completely. My son will be 2 soon and I am grateful to God and thankful to his medicine too.Dr Itua Can As Well Cure The Following Disease… Cancer, HIV, Herpes, Hepatitis B, Liver Inflammatory,Diabetes,Fibroid, Get Your Ex Back, If you have (A just reach him on drituaherbalcenter@gmail.com Or Whatsapp Number.+2348149277967)He can also advise you on how to handle some marital's issues.
