Apple Quilt

I've made my first quilt! Or rather mini quilt as it's approx 24 inches square.  I say approx as I have real problems getting things straight, measuring, finishing neatly etc. but despite the wonkiness it has actually come out better than I ever thought it would.  I used a Moda Chocolat fabric charm pack, and a Spellbinders die to cut the apples in my Cuttlebug - I got a very clean cut. I used bondaweb to stick the apples on and then handstitched round them, alternating stab stitch and cross stitch.  I just tied the front to the backing fabric at the intersections.  I'm pleased to have done it (especially as it's taken me months on and off) but I don't think I'll ever become a quilter!
