4 New Patterns...

Good morning!...I have so much to show you!

I still have 4 new patterns to reveal so I thought I would do them all in one post...
This is yet another apron quilt I have designed...I just never seem to get tired of aprons...and I hope you don't either!
Hiding behind the quilt is my BFF Nanette and her daughter Shelbie who held each of my quilts up while I told about them during schoolhouse at market.
They were so much help...I really couldn't have done it without them:) And to those of you who attended my schoolhouse...thank you so much for the warm welcome and enthusiastic response...I was a little nervous until I saw all of your friendly smiling faces.
The pattern is called "Remember Grandma's Apron"....designed to bring back all of those wonderful memories of our grandmothers. It's a nice size for a wall quilt "41 x 53"...and works up quickly with a large applique block for the center...a small amount of embroidery...surrounded by square in a square blocks and bordered with scallops and red ric-rac and polka dots. 
Next up is a quilt for the bed!....creamy butter yellow background...
Each daisy made from a 10" square of Sew Cherry...with leftovers for the centers.
A super easy and fun block to put together!
All of course are surrounded by a white picket fence which looks really cute hanging down the side of the bed....
Mr. Honey tacked it to the side of the deck in our backyard for the first photos...
This quilt is called "Fenced Flowers" and measures 68" x 91" which is just perfect for a twin or a daybed.
It looks sew cute on the bed with a generous amount of pillows piled high for comfort!
And now lets talk about table quilts....I love quilts on the bed, but I must admit that I think every table in the house needs one too and looks better with a quilt on it!
I designed this table runner in the very generous size of 36" x 64" to fit across the farm table in my kitchen.
And here's cute Nanette and Shelbie again....now you can see it's full size. It looks very vintagey cottage on the table with a large vase of  fresh cut garden flowers in the center! 
I love  how easy the blocks are to make by using a 60 degree ruler and 2 1'2" strips....really a quick project.
And well...you all know that I love jumbo ric-rac and that I love to use brown in my quilts to warm them up and to make the other colors really sing!
This pattern is called "Cherry Blossom" table runner. Another great thing about it is that it's also the perfect size to fit across your kitchen counter and you bet I will be using it there to layout the potluck dishes during a family gathering:)...I hope you like it!
This is a picture of another quilt on my studio design wall during the designing and piecing stages.
I also designed this quilt to go on a table....which is why I made it square. That way it can fit on any table no matter the shape...whether it be square, rectangle, round or oval. Simply place it on point in the center  of the table and it adds an instant warmth, color and texture to the room and also makes a nice colorful background for a centerpiece such as a large vintage bowl filled with.....cherries of course!
This quilt reminds me of summer and picnics and down home goodness!...and features another seriously fun and easy block to make.
Of course I used red ric-rac in the binding again...another thing I never get tired of:)

The pattern is called "Sew Cherry" table topper and finishes at 56" x 56" square.
I used the yellow stripes cut on the diagonal for the binding ...which I think finished it off nicely.
Well...now you have all seen the first 9 patterns completed!...whew!
There are even more patterns in the works for Sew Cherry but I just didn't have time to complete them all before market and I will be working on getting them finished up now.
Of course you will be the first to know when each one is ready...right now I'm working on several fun projects for the kitchen!

Once again I want to thank each and every one of you for all of your kind words and lovely comments. They all mean so much to me and I apologise that it is taking me so long to reply!....I still havn't been able to slow down much yet from the market frenzy....don't give up on me please...I'll be back to my regular posting soon:)
