Assembly Instructions

Layout the Apple Core pieces into a 3 x 3 grid design, nesting the curves into each other.

Starting with the top row, sew the top of Apple Core 2 in the side of Apple Core 1.

Apple Core Assembly

To piece the curved edges together, start by pinning right sides together at the edges, then pin the middle. Finally, pin the spaces in between.

Sew along the curved edge, removing pins as you go.

Complete the top row by sewing the bottom of Apple Core 2 into the side of Apple Core 3.

Repeat for the remaining rows, alternating the apple core pattern.

Sew the rows together to complete the quilt.

Quilt as desired and bind with bias binding.
