18 Rows Done

80 x 60 inches so far...

I started this Apple Core Quilt top a year ago.

It takes 12 hours to complete a row...

Cutting time, marking seam lines, piecing the row, then adding the row to the quilt top.

216 Hours so far...

This is my Take-A-Long Quilt

I only work on this when we are traveling down the road at 55 mph

Piecing while traveling is "Found Time"

I never would have pieced this at home by machine, but traveling in a car with lots of time on my hands......this is perfect!

Today I assembled 10 more rows to sew...
Luckily we are traveling next week.....yeah~!

Wow! That looks great! What a labor of love though - 12 hours a row. Its worthi it though by the looks of it. Completely fabulous! Well Done LuAnn!

That looks great. And you did it by hand, wow!

LuAnn Kessi said...

Thank you for your kind comments.
I originally planned on this being a lap size quilt, but I can't stand the thought of ending it now.....
I guess it will be bed size someday.

Awesome. I want to be like you when I finely grow up. Not a fan of handwork - at that an understatement.

Dear LuAnn,

I just hand-pieced a small (48”square) apple core quilt, with a photo of my grandmother in the 1940s in the center. I would love to see how you quilted your apple core quilt as inspiration as I decide on designs for mine.

Thanks so much!
