To start off, here is a neat project using some leftover APPLE fabric…………this table topper may be found almost every Fall on my coffee table. And , no, I am not ready to start using it yet…..the leaves outside are still green – whew!

Little Fall table topper project with apples & pumpkins using up fabric scraps left over from other projects. Here is a lesson: do not store your quilts folded in half! I pressed this several times before taking the pic. Guess I will have towash it and steam it when wet to remove that crease.  Best way to store quilts?....keep watching and I will give tips later this month.

I often like to use decorative stitches on my JANOME SEWING MACHINE  to embellish my blocks. Here I used a satin stitch to outline the snowball part of the block with the apple fabric - using an orange thread for the Fall!
