It's A Cheri Kind of Day

It's a Cheri kind of day because I have two quilts made from Cheri Payne patterns to show you.  One a finished little quilt and the other a top not yet quilted.


The first quilt is from a pattern in "A Country Quilt Garden" called "Flowers In Bloom".  I had a few fat quarters of fabric in stash that have a cottage style look.  I was able to pull some other fabrics that would work with them and made this small wall hanging.  I used a small piece of Jo Morton's new line Reflections for the angel's dress.  I have just a fat 8th of it and am rationing it as I like it so well.  I have not found any more of it to purchase but will keep looking.


The wall hanging size quilt top is made from a pattrn  called "Watering Can Quilt" and is in Cheri's book "My Flower Bed".  I now have it layered for quilting but have not decided exactly how I want to do that.  There is another quilt pattern in the book that I would like to make only in a larger size  and am giving it some thought.

I enjoy the comments that are left.  Remember that, if you don't hear back from me, you are probably a "no reply blogger".  I understand that some people prefer it that way and that is okay with me.  I still like hearing from you.

I made that top quilt eons ago! I have a couple of her oldie but goodie books!

The Angel does have a cottage feel, nice job. Don't you love it when you can mix fabric lines. It makes the piece your own. I don't think I have any of that fabric for the dress, but I'll look. The watering can is delightful. I'm learning that as new things come out, it's the previous designs I still go to.

I love the quilting you did on Flowers in Bloom. This is a great Cheri kind of day!

The top quilt has a soft, Spring look to it--perfect!
I love the drooping flower in the watering can. That would be me. : )
I'll see if the LQS has any of that Jo Morton fabric.

QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI said...

your Angel quilt is so sweet--I do love country stuff--great job--and I know I don't have any of that fabric--sorry--
your watering can is cute too-that droopy flower makes it so sweet and kinda real if it was in my house!!!
I find when I am basting a quilt often a plan forms on how I want to hand quilt it--so hang in there!!
enjoy the moments, di

Flowers in Bloom is so fresh and Springy. Love it! But the Watering Can really makes me smile! I went to look right away for Cheri's book and found one on Ebay, it's headed my way. Have you checked the Fat Quarter Shop?

Sue said...

Adorable !!!!!

Susan said...

I don't know if the color you want in the Jo Morton line is here, but Fat Quarter Shop is carrying the line. Or Hancock's in Paducah. Maybe. I like your angel, but I really like your watering can.

Susan said...

I've looked all over the internet and can't find a single copy of that book available! Rats!

You always do such a great job with Cheri's patterns. You capture he style beautifully.

Both quilts are sooo sweet Karen !

Jennie in GA said...

So cute, with a very different feel to each. Love them both, but the angel is my favorite. Maybe because she feels like spring!!

Barb said...

I love that piece from Jo's Reflections line also! I was just admiring it last night as I leafed through my Layer Cake:)

Karen in Breezy Point said...

Both of your little quilts are adorable--perfect for Spring! I totally understand about rationing fabric--good luck on your hunt!

Both of these little quilts are wonderful and a sweet way to welcome in Spring!

Super cute!! I love that watering can, I'll have to look for the book!

Janet said...

Love them both. Watering can is perfect for the gardener, I could see it hanging in a screened in porch.

Jocelyn Thurston said...

Such sweet projects. Love the fabric choices for the angel and the watering can. Certainly all your projects are wonderful.

I love that watering can! I saw a watering can, antique, at a flea market last week for $40! I have one in my shed - I guess I best get it out and decorate with it. :) blessings, marlene

Pink block of your Botanical quilt is so beautiful.
Flowers in bloom so already become fun!
Beautiful soft colors.
Watering Can Quilt block I find very beautiful, I like application patterns.
Greetings,

What cute little pieces you've shared! I particularly like the watering can with the sweet flowers and the drooping one adds so much character! It is a challenge, sometimes, trying to decide how to quilt a piece, isn't it?? :)

Really makes me want to drag out my Primitive projects. Bought two great projects with some beautiful hand dyed suede looking primitive fabric!
