Cherry Sundae

I love a quilt that can be whipped up in a week.

I needed a quick project that I could make for a church auction tonight.  It was a fundraiser for girls' camp this summer, and since I have two girls going this year, I thought I should do a quilt. 

I made my Cherry Sundae quilt based on this tutorial.  I sized it down a bit, so I'd be able to get it done in a week's time!  

I used two charm packs of Vintage Modern by Bonnie and Camille.  

I love these fabrics.  So beautiful!  I love that Bonnie and Camille have kept their colorway pretty consistent throughout their last three fabric lines.

It makes it easy to coordinate backing and binding, even though yardage for Vintage Modern isn't out yet!

The backing and binding are both from Bonnie and Camille's Ruby, which I love as well.

The quilting is of course, my loopy quilting pattern.  I'm getting a little bored with it, and I'm sure everyone else is.  But when I'm trying to get it done fast, it's a pattern that I don't have to think much about and works up really quick, especially when I make big loops.

The white is Kona Snow.

This little lap-sized quilt measures up at about 50" X 60."

I started this last Friday and finished it up tonight.  

I may have been able to finish up quicker if I hadn't been watching this while I was sewing:

It's too addicting!

I just finished Season 1, and now I have to wait for Netflix to send my first disc of Season 2.

I can't wait to see what happens with these guys,

these guys,

and these guys!!
Don't you just want to slap those two??

Anyway...I think my quilt did pretty good at the auction sold for a price that was happily above my cost of the materials, so that made me feel good!

I hope everyone has a good weekend!  It's supposed to be cold and miserable here, which will give me some sewing time hopefully!


And be sure to stop by on Monday, because I'm going to be having a
