Cherry Baby..you got the way to move me!


A little something for you to listen to while reading this post.  Who doesn't love Neil Diamond!  One hot ole Man!  This song is how I feel about these two quilts.  Yes TWO maybe 3 Cherry quilts.  So here's the one you've been seeing the last couple of weeks.  All the blocks halfway together.  Now I need to figure out how to set them in the quilt.
So using EQ7, and the book, I came up with these. Designing the Dresden block was not easy in EQ.  Simple but cute.
And another with a pieced alternate block.  I want to thank so many of you for your love of my Dresden block.  And due to the response of this little cutie I'll be doing a  tutorial on how to make the cherry block in this quilt next week.  The tutorial will be done in Patriotic colors but exactly the same other than that.  Templates will be provided for those who don't have the ruler that I used.  So make sure you come back next Monday!  
Obsession with cherries?  Possibly.  There's so many cute quilts being made right now.  I came across a few pieced cherry blocks and decided to design my own.  After failing with EQ, graph paper worked better.  Here's what I came up with.
So I made one
  and then two
There's a lot of scrap with this pattern, but they could be used in another quilt or for a border maybe.  
With EQ the block design was totally unusable for a pattern but good enough for an idea of what I would do for the quilt.
Are you seeing a pattern here in colors and style? 
So whats on your design wall this Marvelous Monday Morning?!  I'm linking up with Judy over at Patchwork Times for some inspiration, hop on over and see what other's are stitching up.  
Until next time "Quilt out of your Comfort Zone!"

  10. I love Dresden's! Your quilt is so ADORABLE! I really love the fact you designed "pieced cherries". That is a nice way to go... and your other design for the cherry quilt is super cute too. I'm so glad that I stopped by your blog.
