Revisiting My Cherry Tree Quilt

The weather turned cold and that means it was time to bring out the Cherry Tree Quilt to continue hand quilting this 100x100 quilt! The end is in site!  
I've cross hatched 1 1/2" apart and around each applique piece.

I've been working on the border, going one direction all the way around. It's time to start my alternate direction!! Whoop! Whoop!

I think I may have stopped outlining the applique at some point on the border so will need to complete that on my way around the quilt. 

I added the fun and unique motifs that were on the original quilt. 

Gay does an amazing job reproducing these wonderful quilts that she finds and patterns. It's possible she may have a sale this weekend. You can find Beyond the Cherry Tree HERE. 

We had our first snow! I recall quite a few Thanksgivings having to travel in snowy weather or saying goodbye to loved ones having to drive home on the snow. I hope you and your loved ones have a safe and enjoyable holiday.

I want to say thank you all for the joy you bring to me by continuing to read my blog and offer comments and encouragement. I appreciate each one of you!

Much Love,

  21. Gorgeous. I can't remember and I really cannot tell if you did raw edge machine applique, but it is fantastic. The quilt just makes me smile. Your hand quilting it flawless. Again you are an inspiration. Thank you for sharing.
