Cherry Tree and Swoon

In 100 degree weather I talked my husband and one of my sons-in-law to hold up my quilt.  It doesn't have it's binding on yet, but this is to give you a good look at the whole thing quilted.  I'll think about binding it  when it's not so sweltering. 

Here's a closer look at the quilting.

....and here are all nine laid out.

They still need sashing, but at least all the blocks are done now.

Ripped and ripped on 11 of them! 3 or 4 I threw away as I had cut them from FQ's and cut ONE piece wrong. GRRRRRRRR! Had to toss them out---I CRIED!! But I do like the top!
