To me, there is a Desperate Housewives image that is missing from the quilt thus far, and that is - can you guess?
To make the apple, you will need:
just over 8" square of background fabric
scraps of fabric
- red, green, white and brown (I used three browns) for the apple
- a flesh colour for the hand and a darker shade for the shadow on the hand
Doublesided paper-backed fusible applique paper (vliesofix or similar)
Applique sheet or baking paper
Print out the templates. The placement guide is the same way around as the photo, and the tracing guide is reversed. I have drawn the pieces out separately (note, I managed to miss the green shine on the left side of the apple, so feel free to use it or not in your own block!) if you prefer. This block comes out at close to 8", so if you want to add borders to the block, shrink it slightly so that the 1" mark is less than one inch in length.
Trace the pieces onto the vliesofix, ensuring that there is at least a quarter inch between them and roughly cut around each.
Iron these to the WRONG side of your chosen fabrics, then cut around on the line.
Do the same with the fingers part of the hand and the shadow.
There are numerous ways to finish off raw edge applique. You can hand stitch using a blanket stitch, you can blanket or satin stitch by machine (use a stabiliser behind), or you can free-motion embroider them. I'd tend to join it to the other blocks unfinished, then freemotion quilt the pieces in place.
Hope you enjoyed your apple!
