Little Apple Lady ✓

It is a gorgeous day here and am in a fantastic mood as it's Friday (at last!!) and I've got a finish to share! My first finish off my Q2 list for the 2013 FAL!
        May I introduce 'Little Apple Lady', she's all finished and ready to be sent off to Siblings Together

You may remember last year Lynne from Lily's Quilts put a call out for people to make/donate quilts or quilts supplies so that they could be given to children who are separated from their siblings by the care system. This post here puts it much better than I ever could and this post shows how well those quilts were received last year!  
I knew I wanted to make a quilt again this year and had most of a bundle of Fat Eighths of Little Apples by Aneela Hoey, that I had bought in the sale last year from Fat Quarter Shop, which I knew would be ideal. 
I used a pattern from Camille Roskelley's book Simplify called Little Man, but as it was too narrow I added an extra row of blocks.  
It's backed in Ikea Britten Nummer fabric as I had a few metres stashed! And even though my basting leaves a lot to be desired, I'm really pleased I managed to keep that backing straight!!! 
I quilted it very simply, following the frame of the blocks as I did want to ruin it with my dodgy version of fmq! It's all washed and has finished up being  50"x50", I just need a label now! 
There are lots of quilts popping up in the Flickr group please do go and have a look at all the wonderful quilts people are donating! 
I'm hoping to tackle the garden this weekend so won't get much sewing done, but might be able to sit out and sneak in some knitting! 

As it's Friday and I actually have finished something I'm linking up with 


  1. Looks great! I really need to get to my part in my collaborative donation...

  2. Lovely finish. I love that backing fabric!

  3. Aw, it's lovely! I like the dotty/checked borders and binding. The recipient is going to be so happy!
