new project

Yesterday I had a bit of a surprise to find a photo from my blog appear on Barbara Brackman's blog. I had been thinking about that bowl of cherries quilt because last week we were on vacation and spent a morning picking cherries with my Mom. I thought they were just gorgeous and they taste even better than they look :0)
I do want to make a bowl of cherries quilt one day.... But this week I started something else :0)

I have always liked this signature/chimney sweep block. Last year my husband and sister threw a birthday party for me and I thought it would be an excellent time to gather some signatures. They've been sitting in an envelope for a year and a half. Yesterday seemed like the perfect time to dig them out and get going!

So it works out perfectly - I have all the fun and excitement of starting a new project but technically I can still call it a ufo - lol.

Happy Quilting!

It isn't a bowl of cherries, but it looks like a fun project!

Those cherries look beautiful - so bright and glistening! You know how I love the cherries, anyway... Really like the album quilt pattern you chose - the fabrics look great together.

I love the chimney sweep block too. How nice to get your signatures set. Yours looks great!

I've always liked that patern too. It's so nice that you've got a great block to stitch those siggies into. It will be a nice memory quilt.

Those cherries look so pretty! It's no wonder they've inspired quilts/blocks in the past. Cherry pie sure sounds good too.

Wow, what a thrill to be recognized by Barbara Brackman! Of course we all know what beautiful work you do. I have always loved those album blocks also. Great idea to collect signatures from family members.

Love this block too! I have done a family signature quilt for Christmas and I treasure it.

I am new at your blog and so pleased to find you!

A fun new project to start and a new memory too. I went cherry picking last year and it was fun and they sure are pretty on the trees.
