another food quilt

It's starting to feel a little bit like Fall in central VA. We've had a few days of sweater weather and a stocking-up trip to the farm stand for my winter supply of vegetables (a half bushel of sweet potatoes, a big bag of winter squashes and a few cabbages), and, of course, a big bag of apples.

As I was cutting into one of these delicious local apples, I was enjoying its asymmetric shape and thought it needed to be preserved in a quilt.
