In The Hoop: I Love Cherry Pie


I Love Cherry Pie is in the hoop now. 
Hand quilting in perle #8, size 4 needle. Sometimes called big stitching. 
It's a queen-size; close to king sized. 
Another UFO.  Hopefully not for long. 


It's a Flowering Snowball.  Do you see flowers or snowballs? 

I'm quilting as you see in all the solid red/pink (cherry colored) sections and will quilt some circles in the cherries later on.  I'm not quite sure yet if I am going to quilt concentric circles or interlocking circles. 
I work on it a little each evening after work and quilt along in blog land at Kathy's Quilts for some

Love the big stitches you are doing! This is one cheerful quilt! Does it make you hungry for cherry pie as you stitch??? LOL

I don't know why I'm surprised how many fabrics there are with cherries on them. Or that you seem to have all of them... 8)
I see the flowers, too. But then the snowballs pop out and go dancing by.
Love it!

Wish I was big stitching! I have done four blocks on my current project in about a month. But I do have log cabin that will be big stitched so some day it will be my turn. Love your Cherry quilt!

I see snowballs. How about quilting cherries or flowers on the cherry sections. I like the way you are quilting the red/pink sections. So pretty and fun.
