It’s my day…

…in the

Yay! It’s finally here!!! 

I’m so happy to show you my stacks of bowls,
but first, I want to thank our wonderful hostesses
Carol from Just Let Me Quilt
and Madame Samm from Sew We Quilt!
and hugs to Regina for sharing her beautiful pattern.
I have been soooooo inspired
by all the incredible bloggers
participating in this fun Blog Hop!
Hasn’t it just been awesome?
Soooo much yummy eye candy, right?
Well, I hope you will enjoy my little bowls
and if I’d had a few more hours to my day, I would’ve kept going, lol!

I love paper piecing and this one was so fun!
It’s made with a fun Christmas fabric in red, black, and green

I fused paper backed fusible to some of the fabric
and cut out the leaves and stars for the little appliques…
yeah, those little green stars are smaller than a dime!!!
I know, nuts….

And my other stack had to be appliquéd!
You know how much I LOVE appliqué

and since the pattern gave the option…
Well, here it is!
I used my Big Shot to cut out the little appliqués…
did I tell you how tiny they are?
the flowers are about the size of a nickel!!!
I put two strands of thread through my machine
to stitch down his little tail…
next time I’ll have to stabilize the
background fabric better,
but I like the results…no hand stitching necessary, he he!
Well, that’s it!
I’m so happy you came by to see my little bowls!
But there’s more… 
Check out the other bloggers sharing their stacks today:

August 21st
Happy hopping!

    Cherry, I am impressed what you made from my little pattern. Both pieces are artistic by fabric choice and come to life by the additional appliqué (which I really really love).
    I would like to add your images to my guest gallery. Please contact me at

    Congratulations on being chosen today as one of the top. Both of your projects are fabulous. I love the applique and the beautiful fabrics you used in both projects.

  10. MoeWest says:

    Wow! You made two wonderful stacks of bowls. I love the whimsical applique on the Christmas version. The red and aqua version is so nice with more wonderful applique. Thanks for the inspiration.

  11. Just Carol says:

    So much "eye candy" right here–love, love your bowls! They look like they are just bursting with joy from the top bowls with your added applique. So nice! Thanks for hopping with us. :O)

  12. Quilts And Pieces says:

    Oh I love both of your versions, but I have to say – the black, green and red one for xmas is my favorite of any bowls I"ve seen so far. I"m a sucker for Holly leaves and that color combination. Dang – now I want that one! Mine will look so plain compared to yours! They really are wonderful!

  13. Robin says:

    Well, I'm speechless! Both versions are so amazing that I can't describe how much I love them! I also love applique but I sure am not up to your level! Working on learning machine applique so I think I will become a follower and see what tips I can learn! Wonderful wonderful job!!!

  14. JanesQuilting says:

    They are just plain beautiful. I love the idea of doing the Christmas theme with the bowls. But I must admit, that the applique bird with the red candy cane like boarder is my favorite. Thank you for sharing both with us all.

  15. Thearica says:

    I could have swore that I had commented on your bowls but I don't see it…

    I have had several favorites as the hop has gone along… but I dearly LOVE the blue bird bowls!

    although those Christmas bowls sing to me too! but the bowls with the bluebird are awesome!

  16. Jodi - usairdoll says:

    WoW! Gosh! Your minis and bowls are gorgeous, awesome and amazing! Can you tell I'm in love with them? hehe. I'm going to have to do something similiar for sure. Your flowers may be small but perfect. Thank you big time for sharing both projects with me, I mean us. hehe. Super job!

  17. Pokey says:

    You did such a nice job on both of these, I would have a hard time choosing a favorite. I LOVE the tiny additions you have appliqued, you have definitely made your bowls uniquely yours. Beautiful!

  18. Katherine says:

    Squealing with delight over your beautiful mini quilts, Cherry! Both versions are absolutely gorgeous. Wow.
