Apple Quilt!

I just finished an apple quilt for my friend Katie.  She is due for her first, a little girly bean!, in April.  I am so excited and I really hope we are able to be back in Milwaukee around then so I can shower that kid with so much love and handmade goodies :)

Here it is:



















I took so much care trying to match up seams and press them the right way and make everything look good.  I think the first few blocks I had to rip out EVERY single seam, as I'd made some stupid mistake.  And it was very unlike me to do that, usually I just say oh, well, and let it turn out wonky.  But I slowed myself down and it took me three whole days to finish, which again, is very unlike me.  I usually speed through.  It still is a bit wonky, but I think I've only made three baby quilts before, so I'm still learning.  Hopefully I'll get better...

It is just gorgeous - I am in awe.
I bought squares to make quilts for the girls, but never quite got around to it...
Maybe one day!
