Cherry Blossom Mini Quilt

Update: Here is the very simple Cherry Blossom Applique Quilt Pattern Cherry Blossom Quilt

I didn’t love this quilt at first, but I quilted it and quilted it till I knew it was dead and wouldn’t run away. Plus it gave me a chance to practice wood grain quilting which I’ve been thinking of for a while!

I continued the wood grain quilting onto the binding, because the binding looked so static and blank compared to the super dense surface.

I want to do a quick tutorial for this but it won’t be today. The linen binding was a bit of a chore and then I decided  to add all the extra flowers.

Even though the inspiration was Cherry Blossoms, look at it in the Sweet Pea! Matches perfectly.

    Thanks everyone, so sweet! I was surprised how easy the wood-grain is – the trick for me was to make sure the lines stayed parallell/straight and didn’t veer around.
