Grandpa’s Applesauce

One more Grandpa quilt finished! And a little bit earlier than usual – the binding was stitched down last night allowing me to get a daylight photo this morning for a change!

You first saw this one here – very striking and I think it’s my favorite of the Grandpa quilts. The pattern is called “Criss-Cross Applesauce” and is from Scraps and Shirttails II by Bonnie Hunter. The quilt in the book is done with greens and reds, but I think that it’s turned out quite nicely using Grandpa’s blue shirts (yes – there’s a green one in there too, but mostly blue :)).

And although the front is lovely, check out what’s happening on the back!

Love it! That geometric print, Kona Modern Quilts by Cynthia Frenette for Robert Kaufman, was a find at a LQS’s winter clearance sale last weekend – at $5 per metre, I couldn’t walk away. When you need a lot of fabric for a quilt back, it’s great when you find a deal like this one! It makes me smile every time I look at it and hopefully, nephew C, who chose this quilt, will feel the same.

And, it’s Friday again (earlier Friday, I must point out!) so linking up to Finish it up Friday over at Crazy Mom Quilts, too :).

Happy Friday!
