Just could not resist....


....joining in with each of you. So enjoyed working my way through the Cherry Tree quilt which I am presently hand quilting.
I love seeing all of your choices in fabrics - from the classic red and green to the warm cheddars. Since my Beyond the Cherry Tree was done in multiple reds and greens, my choice for this quilt has a different approach. The red floral you see is a Moda - 3 Sisters - Portobello Market. Found yardage a few years ago and it has been waiting...before I washed it, the finish had a sheen to it like chintz. Was disappointed when it disappeared but still love the color and print. The only other fabrics will be the blue and maybe a touch of the cinnamon now and then. The background is a light caramel.



I wish each of you happy stitching and look forward to sharing our journey together..now I need to catch up with everyone and return to working on Block 1...
