10 x 4 Apples Up on Top

I've finished another quilt for the hope chest.   This time it is a quilt for my first great grandchild.  It may be awhile - my grandkids aren't even in their teens yet. 

I decided to call the quilt 10 x 4 Apples Up on Top and put one of my kid's old books (probably about 40 years old, read a lot and falling apart) with it in the hope chest. 

The quilt is made of 30s reproduction fabrics. Some of the blocks are from a couple of different swaps - one of apples and the other of 9 patches. 

I hand quilted it with #8 red perle cotton. 

54 x 66

This is the first quilt from my 2015 30s Bin Bust Challenge. 

At the end of the month I'll link up to Julie's Binding Blitz
