What I am doing in between The Cherry Tree blocks....

I was just reminded by a message board that I am a member of.  One of the staples for this board is....Motivational Friday....where we report what we have been working on for the past week.  So, I thought I would share it here, too.

My immediate priority is to keep up on the Cherry Tree Block of the Month, but when I am finished with that, I try to work on Hearts and Hands (although I should be devoting ALL my spare time on my daughter's wedding quilt).  Anyways, I had some of these prepped, so picked them up and started stitching.  I have been stitching a little on this one and a little on that one.  These three just got completed. 

These four are in progress and nearing the finished mark.

I think the wedding quilt is feeling a little daunting to me right now, but I know once I get to it, I will go gunho.  For now it just feels good to get some of these completed. 

Guess I had better get busy and get these four done.  Then there are plenty of other projects calling my name, too.   

Ok, got one more done tonight.

Last one to be added tonight....

  3. The blocks look totally different in your colours and I love the choices, it's gorgeous.

  4. How beautiful. I don't believe I've seen that pattern before. Thanks for sharing.

  5. The blocks look great. The fabric choices are really neat. I have been searching for background fabric to start my hearts and hands quilt. I even put up a question on my blog for quilters favorite background fabrics. LOL.

  6. Faye - I absolutly LOVE these blocks!

  7. I love these blocks! I will have to find this book! Love the term hearts and hands. I have a hearts and hands plaque that hangs in my house!

  8. I am really liking the colors that you are doing your Hearts and Hands blocks in. I have the pattern and it's on the "short" to-do list. Great inspiration!

  10. I'm working on this too. I do love the original colours and that is what I am using, but I really love how yours looks! Very cool!


I said I wouldn't......

I meant it when I said it. But I failed and ended up doing it. I picked up the knitting needles instead of getting back to my pile o...
