Delilah Baby Quilt Finish

I finally finished this over the weekend. It would have been done sooner, except I had to take some of the stitching out and redo it due to a fold over piece on the back. I went with Riley Blake's Sew Cherry plaid print in green for the binding. I think it works nicely with the greenery going on with the roses and stands out a bit. I've got it up for sale in my Etsy shop and am now working my way through some other quilt finishes, plus a couple of new quilts I've started.
I'm working on hand quilting the sunshine blocks in my sunshine quilt. I've had some variegated threads that work with this color scheme perfectly. It's imperfect and slow going, but I do like the way it looks puffier when done by hand.
In addition to the My Precious quilt that I started this weekend, I also began an Apple of my Eye quilt. As soon as Julie of The Intrepid Thread posted about this new fabric being in, I knew I had to have it. And luckily, she had the whole FQ bundle at a very nice price. I chose the shooting squares block to use for this quilt. I've made one test block, seen below, but I'm not sure if I'm sold on this block for these prints.
It might be a case of needing to see several blocks together before knowing for sure. I just hate to waste fabric. Which ever block I end up going with, I hope to have a few blocks of appliqued apples, like I did with the sunshine blocks in my CTMS quilt.
