Snap Up Cherish On SALE ! (sale now finished)

Meet Cherish, it's a blooming beauty! Here we have a quilt that's just inviting itself to cozy up a bedroom. The centre is an applique arrangement of beautiful flowers, freshly cut from a garden teeming with ladybugs, bees, daisy chains and blooms! 

And the colours - oh the colours..where do I even start? This is a pattern you can really trust with those prints you love to pieces but don't want to cut up because they're so pretty. I know you know what I mean!

To make things even better, the shapes are large and easy so that even applique novices can feel confident and the simple hourglass blocks bring all your favorite fabrics together to frame your lovingly made applique blocks. Are you in love yet?

Quilts this pretty are simply impossible to forget. You've already seen my idea for a grey chambray background (above) to make your fabrics pop. But what about a creamy light background to play up the charming blocks that just beg for your attention with all their little details? And I can also see this quilt coming into it's own in reproduction fabrics too. Fabrics old or new, this is a beauty that's just waiting for your special touch. 

The finished size of 68 x 80 inches makes it perfect for a single bed. And who wouldn't love a bed covered in this cheerful, loving quilt?

Hold Onto Your Heart: The Alternative Border Option

Although I am head over heels in love with the floral rose border, I have also designed a beautiful alternative border that really comes into it's own. This alternative rosette border is a perfect balance of applique and piecing. This month in Part 10 we are making the corner rosette blocks. Here's how I made mine:

Carefully follow the pattern, making sure your pieces to don't 'grow'. To help keep the size in check, start from the outside first and work inwards.
Position the leaves first, then the red petals
When you have joined the pink petals, cut away the centre to avoid bulk as per the picture below
 Then press open all seams and place into position
Next, position the motif so that you can see the centre of your pattern sheet beneath. From this point of centre, start positioning your diamond pieces.
Stitch all into place and position onto the background fabric
This is what the back looks like
 and this is a close up of my centre from the back
 The finished rosette! Make 4x.

     ' Hold Onto Your Heart' is a paid BOM   
It's a breathtaking quilt full of meaningful symbols and beauty. The floral border is a triumph which offers an additional  pieced option - making it versatile for all skill levels. Perfect for lovers and enthusiasts of applique. 
  You can start this BOM today!   
Be sure to visit my Online Quilt Group on Facebook where progress images are being shown all the time. It's a massive inspiration and I warn you, it's addictive!

Hold Onto Your Heart: The Roses

Today it's time to talk roses: I just adore these florals, they're pure romance.The roses you see here are from my gentle quilt, I haven't made my bright and cheerful version yet. Here are the fabrics I selected for my gentle basket. As you can see, I opted for a repetition of fabrics to anchor the basket and the stripes just spoke to me - I knew they'd be my handles when the time arrived.
Given my subtle color scheme, I knew straight away that the roses would have to be charcoal or a soft buttery yellow. After a lot of consideration, I decided that gentle wind blown roses would look the best on this quilt and ended up using Kashmir by Jinny Beyer. It's a gorgeous fabric that really lets these rose heads come into their own. 
Of course, these are just images taken during 'production' at all hours of the day and night. I can tell you that the roses look so much more beautiful in real life than they do on screen, they're simply irresistible. 
As always, preparation is key. 
Follow the pattern sheet closely, making sure none of your pieces 'grow'
Construct your rose heads, layering the pieces to create the full bloom.
For my leaves, I opted to sew the stem line for definition
like so
These beautiful roses are forever and I can't wait to see them in position..
