Hello Friends! I had shown you last summer sneak peeks of a quilt I was making using Riley Blake’s Apple of My Eye fat quarters!
I am happy I can finally show you “Apple of My Eye” in its entirety! It is featured in “Love Those Precuts“, a newly released Annie’s quilt pattern book.
This was a fun, easy and quick quilt to make. I thought the snowball blocks made cute sashing accents among the fabric squares.
The publisher creatively styled the quilt as a child’s bed quilt. I think it can also be used as a table topper for a spring whimsical themed tea party.
Here, you can see I have styled the quilt to go with more serious props. I quickly stole a few minutes from work to set out my props while Miss Baby was resting! If you had followed me in my early Ivory Spring days, you would know that I used to style my quilts with tableware A LOT more, and always enjoyed it. Life is just a little bit more complicated for me to play with my dishes now compared to my pre-Miss Baby era.
The quilting motif was inspired by the paisley print on the border fabric. You can see it better from this picture of the quilt back, and a close up of the fabric print. I have posted the stitching path of this motif in a Thread Talk post here.
Here is the question of the day – what dishes (or props) would you use from your stash to go with “Apple of My Eye”? I would personally like to look in Ellen and Mrs. Magpie‘s stashes to see what else would go with the quilt. ;)
Thanks for stopping by – it’s back to work I go!!
