The quilt top is done and I'm trying to decide what to put on the back... Do I cover it with yardage from Sew Cherry?? or a simple solid on the back?? The front is so busy, that a colorful but neutral backing might be a little more soothing... a yard of pink cherries though would be awfully sweet!
Just sold a baby quilt on etsy yesterday- I'm very happy. It's on its way to a little girl in Nebraska :)

Where have I been? I missed the boat on this fun block! Had to try it out today - what fun. Looks time consuming for a whole quilt, but totally worth it.
Thanks to Canton Village Quilt Works, I am starting a BOM, and I am very excited! The first block design came out this morning and I got right to it. I call it "September" since a new design will be released each month. Can't wait until October 25th...

Here is the finished quilt - we went for a long drive in the car yesterday and I was able to get about 4 hours of hand stitching done! I loved using my new Kaleido ruler for this, and am amazed by how many other looks this pattern can have when paired with different color combo - as seen in google images and flickr. I really look forward to doing another and going for a completely different look.
Anyway, this one is for sale in my shop!

or plus quilt - not sure what to call it! But, I think it's one of my favorite quilts. I just adore the fabric, and I backed it up with some Ikea fabric I picked up a year or so ago. And red and teal has to be a new favorite color combo.
