Happy Labor Day! Since this is our usual Apple Festival Weekend, I thought it would be a nice time to see some previous posts with all things apple. Comments are closed on older posts as I was getting a huge amount of spam on those, but posts less than two years old still have comments open. This is my Apple Tablescape 2017, and it has some notes on how to serge the table topper made from the apple fabric.
In 2018, I added the gold flatware to the table, and some cute plates to the apple stash. Apple Tablescape 2018.
Then, using the same elements in a different way, this Apple Tablescape 2019 has a completely different feel with the white base tablecloth.
This year, I just set a table for 2. I could use the apple print napkins on this one as I only have two of those. See my post on How to Serge Perfect Fabric Napkins to make your own.
The centerpiece has the matching runner with a basket of apples, a small apple cage with a candle, and the apple halves salt and pepper shakers.
I have several posts of past years with memories of all the fun. Apple Festival 2018 showed scenes of the street fair and music stage.
Click on Apple Festival 2014 to see the apple vendors, and all the apple products we can get during the Labor Day weekend event.
In Apple Festival 2015, I showed an overview of many of the Apple Festivities around town, away from the downtown area including the British car show (that our club sponsors) and the quilt show. Apple Festival is usually a big deal all over town, but this year the car show is canceled.
The King Apple Parade is a small town delight with antique cars and tractors, high school bands, dignitaries in decorated convertibles, and lots of floats.
Every community in the county sends one of their fire trucks, all with lights going and siren blaring. It is loud and fun. It will be nice to see it back next year.
I’ve only made one quilt with apples in it, this Farmer’s Market Picnic quilt. I entered it into the Apple Festival quilt show a couple of years ago. It didn’t win any ribbons, but the docents told me that the guys liked the food fabrics.
