Little Apples is Finished! Tada!!!

You can never do a kindness to soon because you never know how soon it will be too late.      --Ralph Waldo Emerson 





Oh My Goodness!  It is DONE!  I started the Little Apples Quilt last year on April 6th with the layer cake I won from Kelli way back in February of 2012 at her blog  "Seriously I think it needs Stitches"   Thanks, again, Kelli!   And some of you may remember this pattern "Cross Terrain" is from Moda Bake Shop contributor, Lee, of Freshly Pieced----





The quilt became a UFO until last September when I finished the flimsy and then actually even finished the back and sandwiched it together but just couldn't fine the ambition time to get back to it..

LOL...I had forgotten that I didn't center the two strips of charms on the back but I still would have centered the label between the strips anyway.  I notice now that my zig-zags on the borders aren't quite centered to the diamonds in the main quilt top.....ah well....who cares?  Not me!
  
 I am just happy to have it finished and on my bed....and I'm pretty sure I won't ever display it from the back anyway....hahaha



 

.....and you all know I HAD to use some of my machine embroidery on the label...right?

It looks great on your bed. If you hadn't mentioned the center, I wouldn't have noticed, and I didn't really notice after you mentioned it, either! NEVER tell what is wrong. LOL

What a beautiful finish! I just love what you did with my pattern—you came up with a great way to extend it to bed-size! It looks great and I love the back too. : ) Thanks for using my pattern!
