Bright, bright sunshine-y day!

Today is certainly bright and sunshine-y - it's going to be 90 degrees!! So, I dragged out my Made in Cherry quilt to take some pictures.

I'm calling my version Queen Anne Cherry because Queen Anne cherries are yellow and red like this.....

and we won't discuss where the red might have gone in this quilt - okay? I love the all over quilting pattern and my long arm gal, Cass, used a lovely yellow variegated thread. She knows how much I love them and keeps her eye out for any new ones - she's so nice!

I used an assortment of tone-on-tone yellow and yellow print fabrics. Lots of flowers - tulips, daisies,roses, daffodils. Hoffman Fabrics florals have always talked to me, and they always said "buy me", so I did.

Hope you can stay cool where you are - the 90 degree weather is predicted to hang around all week here!

Happy stitching-
carol fun


  1. Love your Queen Anne Cherry quilt. I see bits of pink to represent the red. :-)

  2. I love this! I don't think we see nearly enough yellow quilts. It always seems to be the accent color, but I love it all on its own. So fresh and summery!

  3. It's absolutely beautiful! I love yellow...it's so bright and cheery. And I agree with Shannon above me...we just don't see enough yellow quilts! Yours just screams summer! And those cherries look pretty yummy, too!

    Stay cool!



  4. Beautiful! :)

    I love the yellow, it always makes me think of sunshine and happiness. :)

    Blessings always my friend.

  5. This one is absolutely lovely!

  6. I love your quilt. The name you gave it is perfect. Hugs

  7. I just love the fabrics in that quilt. So springy and soft!!

  8. I saw some red! Definitely some pink. Love, love, love it.

  9. Absolutely beautiful quilt! I see enough red and pink in there to give the hint of red and orange Queen Ann cherries have.

  10. You choose the prettiest colors for your quilts. They are always so bright and cheerful!! Out here(in Wa state) we call those cherries Rainier cherries. They grow lots of them out here!

  11. Perfect quilt for a hot summer day--find a nice shady spot, lay it out and take a snooze. Not right now when it's in the 90's though, more like a quasi-warm summer evening with a nice breeze blowing! :)

  12. OH so bright and happy and pretty! Gonna be a hot one here today too.


Thanks for stopping by. I really enjoy reading your comments. They make my day!
