Little Apples

After declaring quilty week, I got straight to work on my Little Apples quilt.  I made a similar quilt for a baby shower last fall and had a pile of fussy cut blocks leftover.  They were too cute to not turn into another baby quilt.

The top has actually been completed for several months.  And it hung on a bookshelf at the bottom of the stairs, taunting every time I went into my sewing space.  Now that it's done, I have no idea why I didn't tackle it sooner.  It was basted, quilted and bound in just a couple of hours!

I originally called it little apples, because the little people and especially the trees made me positive it was a line by Aneela Hooey.  But when I dug a little deeper, I discovered it's actually The Simple Life by Tasha Noel.  You can still find some yardage on etsy.  There is also some Fly a Kite by October Afternoon and lots of random border prints from my stash.

It's backed in Apron Strings Pink Bella Solids and bound in a patchwork of the border prints.  I quilted in a simple grid of horizontal and vertical lines around each seam and diagonal lines through the center of each block.

It finishes at approximately 40" x 40" before washing and is available for sale in my etsy shop.


  1. This is adorable!! I love the fussy cutting and the prints for the blocks!

  2. This is so cute! From a distance, I would have thought that was Little Apples too :) What a great use for those fussy cut blocks.

  3. Little apples is one of my FAVORITE lines. Cute quilt!
