Amour de Cerise

Translation...Cherry Love.  Need I say more.  You gals know me and you know my Cherry obsession.  The nine patches are L'Amour charm pack by Sandy Gervais for Moda and the background fabrics are Redwork Renaissance by Chloe's Closet for Moda.  I ran out of the background fabric needed for the border so....I made a quick trip to the LQS yesterday only to find they were closed due to a water leak.  Praying and crossing my fingers all the way to Joann's for fabrics to match the designer fabrics.
The powers that be were listening!  I also picked up the red polka dots.

The raw edge applique is made using Heat and Bond Light and 100wt Invisafil thread (my favorite thread for applique and quilting) and a teeny tiny, little itty bitty blanket stitch.  GLASSES REQUIRED  for this old gal!  

So here's my plan.   There will be a tiny bit of applique on the vine border below.  I'll be designing it by good old paper and pencil.  This quilt will also give me the opportunity to use my new ruler, Marti Michell's inset triangle ruler.  I'll let you know how that goes next week.

  1. That's awesome! I found a bolt of white with red cherries that I was going to hoard but guess I'll put in the shop to help pay for Charlie. I also found a bolt of bunting for 4th of July. I don't know why I kept that-lol. Love your always. Thanks for the sweet note about Charlie! XOXO

  2. Red and white! MMMMMMM
    Love the little red hearts.
    Good plan. Glad it's you and not me.

  3. Great design! Love the Reds and neutrals. It's going to be another beauty.

  4. Lea Anne! I love this so much! Every trip to your blog inspires me!

  5. That looks fabulous. I love the design and the fabrics, and the quilt name!

  6. I love your idea of adding the petals to the nine patch. It's so sweet.
