I Finished Off The Cherry Pie!


I Love Cherry Pie
(aka Flowering Snowball)
91 x 101
Hand quilted


Lots of different red and cherry themed fabrics were harmed in the making of this quilt. 


I started it in 2014 when Mary at Molly Flanders Blog hosted a quilt along. I used her templates but somehow ended up with a 10 inch block. 


I found a mistake while I was quilting it...see how the "flowers" are all red like above? 


Well, I Spy a white "flower". 


I hand quilted it with some red perle #8...


...there are some cherry blossoms in the snowball sections and I just quilted 1/4 inch inside the seam on the red flower sections. 


I used homespun on the back with CHERRIES! I made the quilt a little larger than intended so had to piece some other red checked homespun on to one side.  It sure is easy to hand quilt through homespun with the loose weave. 


Today I will link up with:

I love your quilt, especially the colors. Lively, bright, and fun. The "white" flower gives it an added oomph.

Thank you for sharing. Love the finish and enjoyed reading about it on SB also. It's so tempting to download the templates and start yet another quilt - yours is very inspirational! :) Andrea

I love how cheerful this quilt is and the handquilting is perfect for it. I'm visiting as a member of the official 2015 Finish-Along cheerleading squad.
