It is no big secret that I love Little Apples. This is my second quilt with this line (remember the first?) and I can't get enough of it! The colors are so unique, just perfect for autumn aren't they? The illustrations are so sweet and charming. That Aneela, she sure is good at designing fabric isn't she?
This is my first time using the Garden Fence block. If you haven't tried this one yet, you have to! I am going to make another version of this pattern very soon. The finished block is so cute, and it is really easy.

almost there!

Things are going great with my Briar Rose quilt.  I quilted it a couple weeks ago on the hottest two days of August.  Great decision, right?  It was such a cool month for us, of course it just happened to be sweltering the two days I was in the mood to quilt.  I still had fun working on it, I love quilting and Netflix.  I've been working on the binding the last couple days.  I tend to drag this part out because I love it so much.  I ended up using the same herringbone print from Cloud 9 (at Joann's!!) for the binding.  It is the perfect binding print.  Pretty sure I need that one in multiple colors.  Be back soon!  xo, Angela

PS - I have lots of fun posts over on the Craftsy blog in case you missed them! You can see them on my author page.  There is quite the debate on my post about the pros and cons of  prewashing fabrics (I guess I'm in the minority... I rarely washing my quilting cottons, only those for apparel!)
