With a Cherry On Top!

(The drawing for the Cherry Block Lotto will be at the February meeting on 2/09/2023)

Life is just a bowl of cherries (or…. is it: life is just a chair of bowlies?) 

February is National Cherry Month! February serves to remind us that cherries can be enjoyed at any time of the year, in all their forms. 🤤

So for Block Lotto this month: we will be enjoying cherries in the quilt block form.  Let’s use the lovely instructions from Podunk Pretties Quilting. I hope this goes without saying, but: READ ALL THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY.  There is a part in the instructions where the image shows dimensions to cut the white fabric, but then right below that image she writes a couple of CORRECTIONS of fabric dimensions to cut.  So I highly recommend: read the instructions 2-3 times before cutting.

This block took me about 1 hour total (selecting fabric from my sweet stash, cutting, and piecing = 1 hour).  I realize I say this often, but this was a FUN block to put together!…. And if when you’re done piecing your CHERRY block together you have one piece of white 1.5” x 5” leftover that you cut and didn’t use in the block, then you’re just like me and did it right 😘🍒

 Happy Sewing!
