Fun Friday Giveaway: Cherry Blossoms Quilting Studio

Welcome to another Fun Friday Giveaway, sponsored by Cherry Blossoms Quilting Studio.



Cherry is a wonderful "Southern Woman" who is also a very talented quilter, longarmer, and quilt designer.

She has a wonderful blog where she shares many tips, fun insights.  As a follower of her blog, I knew when I saw her beautiful Christmas Tree Quilt (Feathered Christmas ) that she shared in the 2011 Christmas Quilt Show, that this wonderful quilt needed to become a published design.

Needless to say, I was absolute delighted when I learned Cherry published this "Feathered Christmas" pattern. The finished wallhanging measures 24"x28" and uses a raw edge applique with pieced borders.  It looks great in red/white, blue/white and I'm confident it would look spectacular in batiks, as well as a variety of colors and prints.

Feathered Christmas

Cherry also designed a spectacular Christmas Wreath Design (Feather Fancy)

The finished wallhanging measures 28"x28" and uses a raw edge applique with pieced borders.

Feather Fancy






















































Both Feathered Christmas and Feather Fancy patterns are easy to follow with excellent visuals.  They also come with a full size layout template that helps with placement of the raw-edge applique' pieces.  While you can manually cut these applique shapes, these designs are AccuQuilt GO! compatible using the following dies:  55028, 55087, 55088, 55024, 55017, and 55053.  To clarify, these patterns include everything you need to create this design without the use of an AccuQuilt, or all of these dies, but using the GO! and all of dies certainly helps to make this a very fast and fun project!

I was delighted how easy and fun the Feathered Christmas design came together. I'm certainly looking forward to quilting it, and also making Feather Fancy too.

Don't you think these are perfect designs to help decorate your home for the holidays, as well as make for gifts?

I'm on Etsy!

These patterns can be purchased  from Cherry Blossoms Shop.  They are such a new design they are not yet available in many quilt stores, or online shops.  But, you can let your quilt shops know that you'd like them to carry these designs.  Wholesale orders can be placed through Brewer Sewing.

You can find Cherry at:

Did I Mention A Giveaway?
Cherry is generously giving away a copy of her Feathered Christmas and her Feather Fancy pattern to two differ winners.  To clarify, winners will receive either a copy of Feathered Christmas or Feather Fancy.
This giveaway is also limited to those living in US or Canada.



To enter to win, followers simply need to leave a comment on this post.  Two winners will be randomly selected and announced next Friday.

Want an extra entry? Be a public follower of Cherry's delightful blog (Cherry Blossoms Quilting Studio) and leave an extra comment below to claim this extra entry.




I'm also happy to announce the winner from the giveaway last week, for a pattern from Cozy Quilt Designs. Congratulations to LisaMarie!
