Paper Pieced Mini Quilt

After making this little paper pieced tree quilt I thought about other simple things I could turn into paper pieced blocks. I started with the apple. It took a couple of goes until I got it right and then before I knew it I had designed an entire mini quilt. I definitely took inspiration for the designs and the colours used from 60s and 70s craft books and the story books I remember from my childhood. The fabrics are Kona Cottons and I used white aurifil for piecing and quilting. 
I really loved every part of making this quilt. It's not often I want to remake a quilt as soon as I finish one, but I have plans for at least one more version of this and hopefully I can get time soon to write a pattern for it.
