Apple core, Baltimore . . .

Who's your friend?

Some of you may recall the hilarious episode of Donald and the chipmunks, Chip and Dale, when they use the old comedy routine of "Applecore" --- for those of you who don't remember it, here it is:


If you want to see the whole cartoon, it's available over at that place that rhymes with "boo-cube" . . . no need to give them any more advertising, eh?

Anyway, my latest portable project reminded me of that . . . I think it was sometime last year that Barbara at Bejeweled Quilts had a giveaway, and I won some yummy scrap fabric that she had cut into apple core shapes with her Accuquilt cutter. (Gotta love those machines; I pat my Go!Baby every day and tell it how much I love it!)

I wasn't able to get to it until last week, when I finished another portable project and was ready to start this one:


Isn't this fun? I especially love the pops of color from the Samoan fabrics that she included. Thanks, Barb!

The reason the left-hand side looks a little strange is that it's pinned, ready to sew, but not yet completed! I'm not sure how large this will get --- I'm thinking lap quilt here, and I may have to cut a few more to finish it out. 

Tell me --- do you have a POPR? We quilters love our acronyms, don't we?  (PIGS, UFOs, etc)  
I just made that one up . . . I think I'll use that to mean "portable project" . . . you like it? Do you take a project with you when you leave your sewing space?


I'm linking up today with the Thursday Favorite Things blog hop over at Katherine's place, and her cohost is Marla Martensen!
 
Love,
