Beyond the Cherry Trees Progress


I finally got all 25 blocks of my Beyond the Cherry Tree quilt sewn together.  I like the way it has turned out even with all the mistakes.  The biggest one being trimming all the blocks the wrong size and having to redo some of the applique'.
I had a little trouble trying to decide how to lay out this quilt with an odd number of baskets and that one really red block but with a little help from a friend I think it is pretty well balanced.
Although as I look at the picture I might just have to move the second block in the top row somewhere else.  It's starting to bother me.
Now for the borders and all those cherries and leaves.
Happy stitching,
Nancy

I am looking at that block as the middle one. It's very dark compared to all the others. I posted a preview of my 22 blocks on the design wall and I think it's in the middle. It's been moved around a few times with me.

Great looking quilt top. Sometimes the hardest part is getting the top to be balanced, but you did a great job. M
