I decided to do a series of posts this year, of scrappy fruit blocks. It's inspired by the strawberry quilt block I made a few weeks ago - there's lots of scrappy strawberry and pineapple quilt blocks out there, but most of the other fruits are ignored! Which is just unfair to the rest of the lovely fruits out there. So I'm giving them their chance to be scrappy quilt blocks.
Of course, I'm starting with one of the most common fruits - but not many of the existing blocks are very scrappy. So here is the scrappy apple block - just one to keep the doctor away! Get the printer-friendly pattern here!
I am using the same neutral (Kona White) through all my blocks, and the same green scrap (Michael Miller Landscape) for all my leaves. As Kona White is always readily available, I can pick up more when I run out of my scraps. Also, I use the Quilt in a Day triangle ruler to trim my half square triangles.

I plan on posting one block a month, free on Craftsy until Jan 31, 2019. In December 2018, there will be a layout pattern for the entire Fruit Salad quilt, as well as more specific yardage.
If you’d like join me in these blocks, please use #fruitsaladquilt on Instagram or comment here so I can find your blog!
