Flea Market Apple Core Quilt

This quilt was originally posted over at Suture for a Living on August 7, 2009.


Last week I shared with you Bud’s quilt top.  This is the quilt I “loaned” him when he had his heart surgery.  I found the quilt top at a flea market in 1994.  I loved the fabrics!  I think it must be from the 1950’s era.  The pattern is called “apple core.”  The quilt measures 72 in X 93 in.  It was hand pieced.  I paid a fellow quilter to do the hand quilting, then did the binding myself.

Here is Dorothy from the “Wizard of Oz”

Here is the Scarecrow. 

This photo just shows some of the interesting fabrics used.

As does this photo.

Here is the label with the details of the quilt’s history.
