The cherry cake quilt is getting closer to completion. Its a really cheerful quilt to work on during dreary winter days. Only four more applique blocks to finish and then I can sew it together and think about border choices. What to do, what to do: fancy appliqued border with lots more berries, vines and baskets or just call it a day and add a plain border fabric? Time will tell as soon as its finished!
Closeup of the latest finished block - its called Spreading Leaves from the Inspired by Tradition book by Kay Mackenzie. This book is really great as it comes with a CD so you have options for 6, 8, 10 and 12 inch blocks all ready to print out. Even though this is a six-inch finished block, I used the pattern for the eight-inch block as I wanted the applique to fill in more space. I plan to use this book to make at least two more blocks as there are a couple more cherry blocks included. Really appreciate you stopping by for a visit, and always enjoy your comments and feedback!
