Yes, I have re-engaged on my Beyond the Cherry Tree project. It's the 3 P's that will keep me going, Prep, prep, prep. Selecting the colors and fabrics can really bog me down on this project and I have to kick myself in the butt and say "just pick something out of the box, it will work!" With 25 blocks, you need a variety of prints and colors and althoughI didn't stick to the colors on the pattern, I did stick to reproduction prints. The green in the vine is the only constant between all the blocks.
This is block 23, but I'm really not that far along. I still have 15, 17, and 19 to 22 left to do, as well as the border. I've got lots of cherries prepped, enough for the whole border but I see a few more blocks calling for circles. All in good time.
Due to the amazing internet, I've stayed engaged in this project and seeing all the beautiful blocks from quilters around the world has kept me inspired and helped me along. If you haven't checked out the blog where we have been sharing our BTCT, it's worth a peek. All the contributors are listed and if you click on their name, you will see all their posts and blocks. It's fun to see how others have interpreted this pattern.
