Made in Cherry - Made in Swoon

I finished this one up over the weekend.

Made in Cherry - Made in Swoon


It originally started as a quilt along... of course long over now... and I've had it basted since February or March... but once I decided to get it finished up, it came together quickly.

Made in Cherry - Made in Swoon

The binding was a true community effort... I couldn't decide between pink and green, so I put it out to my Instagram buddies. Pink was the overwhelming response. But then brown was suggested. So I tried that out to. Now I was stuck between pink and brown. I hate those decisions where there is no wrong answer... the pink would look fabulous, but the brown would frame the quilt nicely. I spent a day with the quilt on the floor auditioning binding. Finally I came to a decision... brown with a touch of pink. And I'm so happy with it! Thanks for all the help IG friends!
