Cherries Jubilant!

This has been a long time coming! I started this quilt around 5 years ago, and tonight (well, this morning I guess) I finally finished making the blocks! It's 3:30 am, and I'm tired, but happy. Right now they don't even look cute to me anymore. LOL! I bet after a little sleep that will change. I need to mess with my layout a little more, or I could just leave it there and let the Committee for Arranging Tops Sloppily (C.A.T.S.) do their magic. ( Ok, I DID mention that it's 3:30 in the morning right?)
For some reason I have had a hard time with this quilt. It looks so scrappy and random, but I put a lot of effort into making it look like that. This one just didn't come very easily. Ah, well, it's the ones that give us the most trouble that we love the best. (Right, Mom?)
I kept taking it out, working on it a little, putting it back, taking it out just to look at it, putting it back. I even gave it to my sister for a while, but she gave it back after cutting some strips. This baby just didn't want to be borned I guess.And now I can clean up THIS mess! Well, to be truthful it's even worse now but I'm not going to bother taking another picture AT 3:30 AM! So 'night all, and hopefully the next post will be a completed top.


  1. First of all I am impressed a post at 3:30. Hopefully, as I write this you are sleeping soundly. Your quilt looks great.

  2. Well....I beat you.....I went down for the count at 3:04 am!
    Great job....your quilt is lovely!

  3. i woke up at 3:30. this is looking just great! good for you. it's going to feel so good when it's a top!

  4. I woke up at 4:30! You girls are funny!!!

    I laughed out loud when talked about the quilt committee C.A.T.S. I have one of those committee's too, and he to is horrible at arranging quilt blocks! lol

    I found your blog through Belinda. I love how you made polka dots on your fabric.

    I'll be back!

  5. The cherry quilt is fantastic! I also like the way you have the photos/frames on the wall - so striking - yes I noticed them even through the mess lol!! You don't want to see my house right now...ugh...


Got something to say?
