Apples - November's challenge for the Across the Pond Sew Along

For the Across the Pond Sew Along Amy from Amy Made That! has chosen Apples as this month's theme. I love apples: eating them (!!!) and in design too. It's incredible how an apple can look really great in so many different designs. Recently I made the Yum-Yum apple bib for the Zakka Along Patchwork, Please.

Have a look at the Patchwork, Please Flickr group to see how many different versions of this bib were made!

Cropping up over Blogland, as Amy noticed, are the fantastic apples from Lori Holt's (Bee In My Bonnet) new book Quilty Fun. Are you following the Sew Along and Blog Tour? You mustn't miss Kerry's version of the apples at verykerryberry. She is hosting the first stop of the Quilty Fun Sew Along and Blog Tour. I'm very tempted to buy this book...
Kerry writes one of my favourite blogs, have a look yourself and you'll see why!
This photo is from her blog verykerryberry showing a detail of her version of the Quilty Fun blocks:

And have you seen this beautiful necklace? It's made by the talented Ingrid Figueras at Sewing Lab.
Take a look at the rest of her Fruta collection too... delicious!

I had better get working on my apple project then!
