Another one bites the dust.....

My 23rd Beyond the Cherry Tree block is complete.

It looked like this on the 27th of December.

and since it wasn't a very difficult block, I finished it up late (very late) on December 30.

Here's a couple close ups of the two different colorways for the flowers.

Block #21 is prepped as far as the freezer paper is concerned.  I will pick out my fabrics for each piece and get busy on it. 

Block #25 will be coming soon (patterns are offered up on the 10th of the month)  and then the center of this quilt can be put together.  It has been a long time coming. 

The border patterns are being offered one side a month.  I have three of those patterns, but I won't be working on them until the center is done.  Saying that, I don't feel so far behind on this quilt. 

It's been a long 29 month block of the month.  In the end, this quilt is going to be well worth it though. 

Here's wishing everyone a Happy New Year!


  1. This quilt is definitely going to be worth it. and yes, it's been a long journey. I'm so thankful for the blog, otherwise I might have made a 9 block and called it good on this project.

  2. It is looking so beautiful! Sometimes doing a BOM makes me nervous just because I know another block and another and another will come and I'm committed to it. And then when it's finished I feel so happy that I did it. So it's a project of mixed feelings. Happy new year, friend!!!

  3. That is going to be one beautiful quilt and well worth the time it took.

  4. Your blocks are so pretty. I admire your applique. I am a buttonhole queen but applique, not so much. :)

  5. Your blocks are so detailed and fantastic, I love the fabrics you've picked. It's going to be a labour of love.

  6. Absolutely GORGEOUS block Faye!
    #23...that's just incredible. I've really missed popping in and seeing all your beautiful work! I'm glad to be back and can't wait to follow along your creative journey in 2012!
    Wishing you a Healthy, Happy & Productive New Year!


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...
