Cherry Tree and Jubilee

 Our weather has cooled off in the evenings so I've brought out my 100" x 100" cherry tree quilt. I've outlined all of this block and the center was empty so I took one of the previous stencils from the quilt and put the star in the center. Because I'll be going back and cross hatching I went ahead and left the basting stitches in this block.
 Working on another one! The pen marking is the Frixion, which I feel totally comfortable using on this. I always double check though and make sure I've picked up the correct pen! Once I finish this block then it's time to switch to applique on the porch quilt. I got my pieces prepped the last few days.
Here's a sneak peak of my Jubilee quilt. I've got one more border to go!!

When I'm working on a lot of different projects my sewing room gets to be a mess!! That's when I know I'm being creative and having fun. There does come a point when it needs to be picked up. I got to that tonight. Yea, feels good!

Friday I'll post the next step to Mountain Trail. That should give everyone plenty of time to get caught up.

  2. Oh Lori, these are both such beautiful projects. I just love the fabrics, applique, hand quilting - all of it! Just makes me want to sit down and hand quilt!

  4. Nice to see the Cherry Tree quilt out and about again - thank goodness for cooler weather, right! Today is a big quilting bee at my house. My friends are helping me rebaste my own Cherry Tree quilt. Had a bad experience with long arm quilt basting & ended up ripping all the threads out:o(

    Your Jubilee quilt peek looks fabulous & I had to laugh when I saw the dates. I was a freshman in college the year you were born!! Did either of us know we would have quilting such an integral part of our lives?

  7. That will keep you nice and warm quilting such a big and beautiful project. Your Jubilee quilt promises to be great too. I am up to date with the cutting out and the first bit of stitching and raring to go. You will be proud of the fact that it has all come from scraps in my box.

  8. it's good to see the cherry tree quilt again. you're quilting is beautiful. i'm quilting a table runner right now but you're right; with the cooling weather it becomes more and more comfortable to get out the bigger projects.
    and the jubilee quilt . . . what a tease~! loven' that added signature corner~!~and dying to see the rest!~

    my studio is quite the mess too . . . i guess that is a good thing in a way. i do hope to do a good cleaning up in there soon though.

  11. I must be very creative because my sewing room always seem to be a mess. I can have it sort of neat one day and back to a mess the next.

    You are making progress on the quilting. Summer is not a fun time to have a big quilt on your lap for any length of time. I look forward to you finishing the quilting. And I so look forward to the Jubilee finish. I know that is going to be a good quilt.

  15. Oh, this will be so pretty - it already is! You are brave to delay gratification of removing the basting stitches; such a good feeling. Thanks for the catch-up time :)

  16. You got me so interested in those frixion pens that I finally bought one. WOuld love to be able to see my quilting lines so clearly. Now I need to find a project that doesn't make me feel so anxious about drawing the lines on! LOL

  18. Love seeing your Cherry Tree quilt. You know, it was the inspiration for me to start on the Sally Post blocks. Just love those reds and greens!

    I've got my Mountain Trail all prepped, only the red solid is from yardage the others were all from scraps. I'm amazed by the power of scraps!

  19. Wow, you've really got your quilt mojo going there. Maybe I should have you teach me how to hand quilt. Not sure I would be a very good student tho! HA!
