Whew! It's been a rough couple of weeks around here. The flu bug that hit our house has been making the rounds though luckily I have been spared so far. This hasn't left much time or energy for sewing, but I did finish Olivia's Made in Cherry quilt! It's actually been done for awhile but for some reason it's taken me forever to sew on the binding.
I loved all the quilts I was seeing in the Made in Cherry Quilt-along, but I had already started a Swoon and didn't think I had time. So I'm a little late to the quilt-along party but this ended up being one of those quilts that just had to be made.
This was a very fun design to choose fabrics for and to piece, and came together fairly quickly. I chose lots of bright, spring-y prints, choosing many of my favorites from the Pam Kitty Morning collection and from Aneela Hoey's A Walk in the Woods for Moda. I combined those with a few Denyse Schmidt, some japanese cuties and a few more from the old stash. The background is a pink Sketch print from Timeless Treasures and the binding is another Aneela print - cute little mushies on blue. I wish I could show you the back too, but I forgot to take a photo - it's the Little Red print on blue from A Walk in the Woods. So flippin' cute.
For the quilting, I did some free motion cathedral circles for the patchwork area and mimicked the star points with straight line on the pink background. Which took forever and confirmed my lack of patience with straight line quilting.
I think this is going to be a wall hanging for Olivia's room.
