This apple quilt was started in Autumn I believe and finished last Thursday. It is a birthday present for my little girl. I had a lot of fun making her presents and planning her party as you will see in future posts.
I mentioned in this post that I would be hand quilting this and even though it was a lot of work I did enjoy it. I stitched around each and every letter and apple. My stitch length did get a bit bigger then what I started though I don't mind that too much. I don't usually go for bold graphics so this was a bit different for me. I think I am still trying to accustom myself to it.
The front fabric is Trefle by Kokka and I backed it with Amy Butler Lotus.
It is a perfect crib/lap/snuggle quilt. I used a yard of each fabric so after quilting, squaring off and binding it came to a few inches less then that.
