St Ives in Progress

Way back in November last year I was sent a bundle of St Ives by Sarah Fielke for Lecien as featured in Sunday Stash #120.  This bundle of fabric has been patiently sitting about awaiting for inspiration to strike.

Since then I've seen some lovely projects made from a variety of these prints but have in particular been taken by the Cherry (red/pink) color palette of the St Ives collection as featured in the free pattern designed by Sarah Fielke for Lecien:

Made in Cherry is a free quilt pattern available for download here:  Lecien ~ Free Patterns.

Inspired by Cherry color palette of the St Ives collection I have commenced a new quilt project; something relatively simple so as to feature the colors and the prints.

I think this quilt top needs some interesting quilting to jazz it up, and having just completed two large quilt projects I am really looking forward to quilting this smaller quilt (50 x 50 inches).

Red and Pink ~ just in time for Valentine's Day!

I suspect it is going to be a quilty weekend!

More soon,


  1. I know it isn't finished, but I think it needs something to lift the bone colour .. maybe lime green?

  2. This fabric line has grown on me and I too love the Cherry. I particularly like the way you have alternated your solid fabrics. Look forward to seeing the quilting. Happy Stitching. Susie

  3. I love the way you alternated the solids. I can't wait to see how you finish this one up. I'm sure it will be beautiful as usual.

  4. Your Cherry Star has certainly been given the Red Pepper look! Lovely!

  5. This is really beautiful and simple. Looking forard to see the quilt beeing finished.

  6. I just love that pop of lime with the red!
