1000 piece Apple Core Quilt

Rosanna hand pieced this incredibly time intensive quilt which has 986 pieces of different fabric cores. There are no duplicates in the fabrics used. 3 additional fabrics used for the backing and she will now create a label and binding using another 11 pieces of fabric to complete the challenge to use 1000 different pieces of fabric in one quilt. 

Together we decided a simple stipple edge to edge pattern would be most compatible for the quilt. I spray mounted the quilt with a fabric adhesive to the batting once the backing and batting were loaded to hold it down while basting the edges. I used a taupe colored thread to blend with all the different fabrics.
