I constructed this differently to other quilts. I pieced it, quilted it, then bound it, then after all those parts were done, I did the applique. I wanted to see how the applique would look doing the applique after the quilting process. I generally don't like the 'puffyness' of quilting around such big shapes so by quilting it first you don't get that look. And it looked wonderful!
Here is a close up of my quilting:
The pattern for this quilt is called Abundance, and since I pieced it at The Cherry Shed early this year, I have decided to name my quilt: Abundance of Cherries.
Another project off my long list of UFO's!
