Little Apples - Basted!

A Couple of days ago, with my husbands help I basted the Little Apples Quilt. Then I realized I never took a picture of a completed top...

I ended up altering the original pattern, by not attaching the outer border, because I realized that if I did, I would not have enough backing material. I think it looks good without the outer border. I am glad I picked red for sashing, because it is definitely contributing to the overall feel of the quilt. Now I kind of wish that I put a thin red border on the inner squares inside the blocks/ That would have been a lot of work though, and I am quite happy how quickly this quilt came together!

I also very much enjoyed working with Aneela Hoey's fabrics. I have A Walk in the Woods line sitting there, waiting for me to get to it, and I must say, I am very much looking forward to it!

I am quilting this in gray, so I hope that works well. I am quite excited to finish this quilt up and send it on its way to its recipient!
