Apple Core Hand Piecing

Apple core is a wonderful pattern for hand piecing. I'm using only green, purple and a few black batik fabrics  for this small wall hanging.  My plan is to create a true Charm Quilt which uses only 1 pattern shape (tessellation) and no repeating fabrics.

More Fiber Arts Alliance Show & Tell

 These Show & Tell pieces are all from Dottie who is quite prolific.  First she created a collage piece using recycling fabric and found objects.
Next, her Fabric Zentangles were fun creation.

 She uses the pull tab from food products (Orange Juice containers etc.) for hanging smaller quilted pieces.  How clever.
Finally, her brown piece also highlights found objects as she enjoys repurposing items.
