Beyond the Cherry Tree - Block 8

The latest block from Sentimental Stitches for the antique quilt - Beyond the Cherry Tree.  Lots and lots of leaves in this one.  The last one had lots of circles.  Maybe the next will be a little simpler :-)

I used heaps of scraps, and a few old fabrics I had lying about - some about 15 years old i would think.  No point hoarding them!  Some of my friends, who are also doing these blocks, changed them about to suit their own likes and personality.  I left it as it is as it suits me - a bit messy.

We are now 1/3rd through the project, so I was reminded the other day.  Seems to have gone pretty well on schedule so far, and I have managed to keep up with it, and other things I have to do.  Hope I can maintain the pace.  It helps when you have friends working on the same thing.

This block took my just over a week to do.  I managed to get it done as I hurt my back and have been stuck home not able to drive, or do anything much at all.  On the mend now - so now I can get on with a few other jobs.


  1. Wonderful block! I've been printing out the patterns each month but haven't made any. Bravo to you for working along as they are published. It looks like you'll have a lovely top at the end.

  2. I like the block even if it isn't all symetrical and perfect. Nice work!
