Chocolate Covered Cherries

I have decided that I really like making small quilts – either lap quilt or baby crib size.  Just a small stack of fabric can produce a fun quilt in no time.  I started on the quilt for Ryan’s daughter Fiona last week, and quickly realized that I had enough fabric to make two.  Using the new block technique I learned in the Jelly Roll Quilt Along Block 3, here’s what I came up with.

My sister had given me a fat quarter bundle at Christmas, made up of Pink and Brown fabrics by Moda.  I added some scraps from my stash, along with a fat quarter I picked up in Kingston a few weeks ago.  I love how the browns and pinks all came together, which helped me pick the name “Chocolate Covered Cherries” for these two. 

The quilt for Fiona has a little label in the corner.  I have wrapped it up, tied it with a bow, and it is off to California. 

The “extra” quilt will be the first thing for sale in my Etsy shop, as soon as it is up and running.  I am hoping to be ready to debut it by the end of the month.  Stay tuned!
