Apple Baby Quilt

I know I've been unusually quiet over here for a while.  I'm taking 4 classes this semester, still working at my internship, and have been working a few hours a week as well and will basically be underwater from now until the first week of December.   But I have been occasionally working on a knitting project that is slowly making progress and every now and then I have been able to quilt.

I have to admit, this time it was because I was under the gun.  A baby shower kinda snuck up on me when I wasn't looking so I had to come up with something fast.  Fortunately, I had already set aside a pair of prints that I was in love with... the rest of the fabrics I pulled out of my stash.

 The solids are all flannels, the back is fleece. 

When I found this apple/bird fabric at a quilt shop a couple months ago I fell instantly in love with it and bought a couple yards of this and it and a coordinating bird print (the outer border).

I didn't have a ton of time (I started this baby on Friday and finished it last night - I think that was about 48 hours) so I decided to let the pretty prints do all the work and keep it simple.

I'm pretty pleased with the results and I think it's future owner will be too.  When this post goes live, I'll be at the shower.  :)  I threw in a couple taggies too, of course.  Hope you have a beautiful Sunday!
