Made in Cherry Quilt Along

After finishing the top of my Orca Bay, I decided I wanted to make something quick and easy with BIG pieces. I’m kinda over sewing little pieces for a while! Winking smile This quilt top has been really fast to make, the whole top has only 228 pieces total.
Compare that to the pieces in my Orca Bay top….drum roll please3451. Yes that's right, Three thousand, four hundred, and fifty one pieces.  
Not so windy today, only a light breeze! (yes lawn needs mowing again)

This is a 'quilt along', better than a mystery I think as you can see the pattern first, and decide if you like the design and if your skills are up to it. I noticed several people making this quilt, on different blogs so thought I'd give it a whirl too. Heres the link to all the info if you'd like to make one. 

The back. I like how all the seams make it look like stain glass.
Whangarei quilters remember tomorrow is Club day. Visitors are welcome to come to our meetings, so if you are able to come please do. Bring a friend if you want, the more the merrier. (info of where and when at the top right of blog) See you tomorrow then,


  1. This is a cool quilt. Someone from Kerikeri is doing this one, she was in the shop buying the background fabric. I like your new photography spot, the washing line is nice and natural, and yes it does look like stained glass from the back.
    have fun day tomorrow

  2. I was just looking at that one from Kerikeri today spread out on the floor! and it's so amazing how alternative fabrics can make the same quilt so very different. (I could see myself making one of these one day). And I like your new photography spot too.

  3. This looks so great Leeann,I can see why you have been tempted - I have oohed and aahed over the kerikeri one, and also those out in blogland. I can see me being tempted by it one day.I like the sound of quick and easy!!

  4. Beautiful! I saw the pattern on the Lecian site and wanted to make one. I googled "Made in Cherry Quilt" to get some inspirations for my color choices, and came across your blog. I love the red star with the tan background. Nice job! :)
