Scrap-Apple Block (SHQAL)

Happy Scrappy Monday!

Today's block in the Scrappiness is Happiness QAL is the Scrap-Apple Block. It's a nice big block, finishing up at 24".

Rather than go completely scrappy (as is often my way), I decided to try and keep a little bit of control with the colours. I like how it turned out (although my seams are a little bit out in the centre).

This block did take a little longer than the usual blocks in the quilt so far. It's not a hard block to put together -  just a few more steps than the others. 

I do love this design and with such a large block, you'd only need 8 more and you've have a lovely quilt in nearly no-time.

The Scrappiness is Happiness book is by Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet and includes 32 Scrappy Quilts to make. It's available from the Fat Quarter Shop along with a huge variety of Lori Holt designed fabrics you can use to make this or any of her quilts. 

Here are a few links to the various bits and pieces:
