a Mid-May finish

I forgot to share.   I'm not very good at keeping secrets but this time I was so good at it that I almost let it slip by without posting.  This little quilt was made to welcome a special baby girl into the world. 

Made with the apple core template and stash using Tokyo Rococo to build off of.  I'm always pleased when my fabric plays well together.  I even busted into a long abandoned UFO for some Chic Blooms to add a scattering of yellow. 

If these process pics seem a bit familiar it's because I did give a sneak peak of the project on the apple  slices tutorial (which may be why in my head I thought I had already shared).

For quilting I kept it simple with some top-stitch and channel.  It was refreshing to not be free-motion quilting for a change.

Had I planned a little better I would have centered "California" on the binding but I did make sure it was somewhere to be found.

Flannel backing for baby - well of course.  

Linking up to Finish It Up Friday with Crazy Mom Quilts.   


  1. Delightful colors playing so nicely together, not the typical pink baby palette :-)

  2. It looks like a great block. I like the way you have chosen the colour layout for the cores.

  3. Those are gorgeous apple cores. Love the use of prints and the "reads like a solid" prints together. And the quilting is beautiful!

  4. Cute quilt. I've never made an apple core quilt and I love the fabric
