Life is a bowl of cherries


I know I shouldn't be working on anything else but my own Christmas things, but I just can't help myself!

I pulled out my friend's (the lady who died unexpectedly) redwork and took it with me to stitch group Thursday night. I won't say anything about how they had to call me and ask me if I was coming or not. I knew stitch night was on Thursday, but was it Thursday, already? LOL!

Anyway, I got the redwork almost done, and then I finished it last night. Sooooo, I thought, well I'll just look through the fabric pieces that were sent to me and see if anything popped out to go with the redwork. I found the blue background with the red cherries that goes perfectly. I also found a piece of red for accent. The pattern that came with the redwork originally called for prairie points, but I thought of something I liked better. BUT, here's the deal. I've used up every scrap of the blue/cherries fabric, and it was only a fat quarter!

I am asking (really BEGGING) anyone reading this blog to check to see if you might have a little piece of the fabric in your stash. I only need 4 pieces that are 4" square. That's it! Of course, if you have more, it would be nice for the binding, but not necessary. I believe this piece is going back to the family. I'll post the finished picture of it when/if I get the last 4 pieces of fabric!

Please let me know if you do - I'd be willing to swap fabric or postage!

Sorry Sharon, wish I did have some, you'd be most welcome to what I had. Hope someone has some for you..or maybe you could check that site for missing fabric. I don't recall the exact name..maybe some one else does.

I looked on quiltshops.com and they did not have this fabric...but they do have lots of other cherries to choose from. Hope you find something that will work for you soon

Sorry, I don't have anything vaguely similar. Any chance of finding a fabric with similar colors and intermixing it in with the cherry fabric?

This is really cute fabric! But I"ve never seen it. Sorry about that because it is really cute!

The cherry fabric is an In The Beginning fabric, if I'm not mistaken. This shop has some in their online store... http://www.cottonboutique.com/cgi-bin/Store/store.cgi?product=In_The_Beginning_Vintage&productid=ib3fr1&pid=1#ib3fr1

Sorry I can't help you with the fabric, but I'm impressed with what you've been doing the past week -- does that help?! vbg
I want to go play in my stash too, but must do other things in the house and then finish one tree skirt and make another for a gift, then I can play!
(BTW - I like the red/brown versions!)
