Cherry Limeade

I know most of you are very self-disciplined and DO NOT start another project until the one you are working on is done - right - LOL!!

Well, I just couldn't resist starting another quilt project - I've got 8 going right now - not counting the flimsys that need to be quilted of course!!

I fell in love with an antique quilt I saw in a book by Mary Bywater Cross called Treasures in the Trunk : Quilts of the Oregon Trail.

As you know, I've been shopping for fabric for THE WEDDING QUILT and found this super cute green and pink fabric on-line (on clearance mind you !!) and bought a little.

Thus, was born the beginnings of "Cherry Limeade".  It will be a small quilt, but I am very pleased with the reproduction I am creating!!

Blessings to Ya'll !!

Yes, sometimes it is hard to resist and I can see why you started this one. I especially love the green you've chosen and the one in the original.
Enjoy it!

I have that book too.
I think it was the first book I ever bought.
Your little quilt is going to look so good.
Great fabric choices.
