Made in Cherry

The Made in Cherry top (that was finished when the Made in Cherry Quilt-a-long was going on, and I'm just now getting to it...) is done!  I love this quilt!  The star is made of Secret Garden by Sandi Henderson and the outer portion is Boys at Play (or something like that).  This top was quick and easy, a great instant gratification project.  The only difficult part of the whole thing was the ginormous flying geese that make up the inner point of the star.  I didn't follow the age-old adage to "measure twice, cut once."  Oops!  That meant another run to the fabric store (tough, but somebody's gotta do it) to buy additional fabric.

Here's the back to this lovely quilt.  I had been saving (okay, fine, hoarding) the red on top for absolutely no purpose.  I used some of the larger prints from the Secret Garden collection, some extra Boys at Play and some "borrowed" Verna.  Gotta love those friends that let you shop their stash!
The whole thing is at my uncle's house awaiting a long arm treatment.  I just wasn't up to quilting such a big quilt, call me lazy if you want-I deserve it!
