Table Topper Blog Hop!

It’s my day in the Table Topper Blog Hop
and I’m so happy to be
sharing some of my little quilts.
I’ll start with It’s a Hoot! I designed him back in January and
I finally got him quilted and ready to shine in this beautiful field of wild flowers…
 I have to admit, he is my favorite….
…just don’t tell my other little guys!!!
And here’s George
 Well, I decided to invite him to the party,
so I quickly quilted him so he could join in the fun πŸ™‚
Playing in the Rain was the first thing I thought about making
when I started deciding what to Show-n-Tell for this Hop
  I just know my sweet little ducky is sooooo happy to be here today!
Last night we had the great reveal in our Make Me a Mini Challenge
with my ModGal Guild,
and this is what I came home with!!!
I absolutely love everything about it.
My partner did a fantastic job πŸ™‚
So… do you remember Amore from back in February?
About making your own fabric…
Now this little one was bought at Quilt Festival in Houston a couple years back
and was made by the East Mountain Quilters of Costa Rica
I just love all the detail! (on a 6″ stand)
And now for the last one, 
and I hope you’ll like my little Spring Fling because…
…well, first let me tell you about him. I teach a turned-edge applique class
and I wanted a design that would be pretty, yet cover points, curves,
bias strips, etc., so my students would learn to turn-edge just about anything;
and this little guy definitely covers it all, so…
If you like him…. would you like to enter to win my little Spring Fling quilt?
All you have to do is leave a comment about which
of my table toppers is your favorite,
and if you’re not yet a follower, join my blog and/or subscribe and let me know so you can get a another chance at wining him πŸ™‚
You have until Monday, April 30th to enter.
Winner will be announced Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

Thanks for visiting.
I hope you enjoyed my Show-n-Tell!
And don’t forget to visit these galls in the Hop today…

    I can't decide between the owl and the duck. Both are wonderful and they would both look wonderful in my house so I am going to have to go with both, although the Owl would live in my room so I guess he wins.
    Lovely quilts, thanks for sharing.

  2. Lesley says:

    Fabulous! I love them all. And you are so generous to have a giveaway of your Spring Fling! That mini is my favorite, but it's a Hoot would be pretty close too! Thank you!

  3. Madame Samm says:

  5. JCnNC says:

    Favorite – surely you jest… I love them all. Spring fling is quite a lovely giveaway and I thank you for participating in this wonderful hop. Judy C

  6. Renea says:

    A favorite? I love them all. Where are do you get your patterns or the inspiration for your table toppers? Wish I lived close to you sew I could take your classes. I love applique but my first attempt of hand applique is not very good. Anyway, thanks for the great giveaway.

  7. Diana says:

    It is hard to pick a favorite, because I think they are all cute. It's a Hoot, would have to be my pick, I love the fabrics you used, and the pattern is really cute.

  8. Scrapbook-ChickADoodle says:

    Wow! Do I really have to pick a favorite? They are all sew wonderful! I've loved your "Amore" since I first saw it when you posted a while back. The flowers from your partner at the challenge is beautiful, but I think I vote for Spring Fling. The bluebird, the variety of flowers, all the curves, I think it's adorable.
    Thanks for sharing!

  9. Joyce Carter says:

    All of them are so beautiful, but if I have to choose it would be "playing in the rain" with the little duck. It is sooo cute. Thank you so much for the very generous giveaway.

  10. Christine L says:

    Oh Cherry these are all so pretty!!! I love the Owl, but your giveaway block is also a STRONG favorite πŸ™‚ I wish we lived closer so I could take your classes!!!! Thanks for all the inspiration!!

  11. Kathy H says:

    ALl your toppers are so cute that it is hard to decide on my favorite. I thought of one then changed my mind but finally decided on the owl as I have been seeing them everywhere and haven't made anything with owls yet so am really drawn to that one.

  12. StitchinByTheLake says:

    Cherry I'm totally in love with that duck! I've pinned it on my Little Quilt board because I just have to make it. πŸ™‚ And the floral your partner made for you is simply stunning – What a treasure. blessings, marlene

  13. Katherine says:

    Fantastic parade of toppers, Cherry! My favourite would be "It's a Hoot!" Just love the colours in this cute owl topper. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous and inspiring toppers with us!

  14. Gmama Jane says:

    Cherry, You make such pretty quilts and so professionally done. I feel so inept in your company but I'm learning and getting better with each thing I make. I love your binding and wish mine would turn out so neat. Those mitered corners are hit and miss for me. Wish I could take your class!! I LOVE Amore,,LOL and Spring Fling

  15. Gwen says:

    Beautiful work!! Love your toppers! πŸ™‚ My favorite is "Playing in the Rain", I think, or "Spring Fling"… hard to choose just one! πŸ™‚ Thank you for the chance to win!! I've got my fingers crossed! πŸ˜‰

  16. Leslie says:

    Are you serious? I could win Spring Fling? Be still my heart. That said
    I have to say my favorite is Singing in the Rain. In reality, I love them all and the meadow setting where you photographed them.

  17. Carrie P. says:

    Hi Cherry, you are so talented. I just printed off your George pattern the other day. I might just have to make my own mini.
    Your Spring Fling is a perfect quilt to teach beginner appliquers. I also teach and it good when you can find a pattern to use that teaches all those things that new people need to learn.
    I have to admit it is my favorite even though I really like that you have done.

  18. Karen says:

    It's a Hoot, for sure. We had a Great Horned Owl in the backyard earlier this year! Very surprising!
    I am already one of your followers. Spring Fling would be a most welcomed addition to my home… being a birder and all… just sayin' πŸ™‚

  19. KatieQ says:

    Spring Fling is my favorite. I am very insecure about my applique skills, but have always wanted to make an applique quilt with my grandmother's favorite flower, the bleeding heart. I love that Spring Fling has a bleeding heart.

  20. Bonnie58 says:

    It's a toss-up between spring fling and It's a hoot. Owls are so in right now and he is just precious, but I also love needleturn applique and that looks like such a fuin piece. OHH, I can't decide.thanks for the opportunity

  21. Anonymous says:

    OMG You sure have been busy! I just love your designs-they're so original and cute! My sister would just LOVE the yellow duck as she is a yellow ducky addict! Thanks for the opportunity to win fabulous fabric. Anything new is exciting as I have a "vintage" stash. I'm just trying to figure out a way to use it all up!

  22. usagypsy says:

    I'm a new follower! I love the Spring Fling quilt, but I have to say the little owl is my favorite. And I was happy to see the pattern is available! So I'm going to have to get into my stash and start picking colors, cause this guy is going to be keeping watch at my house!

  23. Loralynn says:

    Your ducky is delightful! He made me smile! I love the pieces you made, as well as the others you included. Thanks for sharing them with us all! I'm a new follower.

  24. SassyCathy says:

    Awh! AWH!! Ohh! Pretty all of them. Hoot is very Cute! BUT I think my favorite is Spring Fling. That pretty little blue bird is adorable!
    I have many of those blue glass blue birds of happiness sitting around my home and they make me happy … I am a Byrd and have ALWAYS loved the feathered friends πŸ™‚
    Thank you for the giveaway chance.
    Sassy Cathy

  25. iluvmybugs says:

    One beautiful mini after another….WOW!!! Love them all, however, Spring Fling is my favorite…the little blue bird, the flowers, your quilting!!! TFS :o)

  26. hennies.pennies says:

    I especially love your Owl and the Spring Fling. They are both so very sweet! Thank you so much for the opportunity to win one of your creations. Whoever is fortunate enough to win this beauty will treasure this little charmer! Be especially blessed, Kathy

  27. Sheila says:

    You know the best thing about these blog hops is finding wonderful blogs like yours to visit , love all of your minis but if I had to choose a favorite it would be the Owl , that is fantastic . Thanks so much for the wonderful display , really love eye candy. I am now a new follower and look forward to many visits.

  28. Kim says:

    It's almost impossible to choose a favorite! They're all so stinkin' cute πŸ™‚ But I have to say, I was quite taken by your Playing in the Rain. I love the colors, first of all, and the design just makes me smile from ear to ear.

  29. Deonn @ Quiltscapes says:

    Oh, Cherry, are you kidding? These toppers blow my mind – what a wonderful collection, all of them! And of course I remember It's a Hoot and L'Amour – just adorable. It's hard to pick a favorite, love all of your collection.

  30. Tracy says:

    I originally stopped by to tell you how stinkin' adorable your little owl is, then found that I love pretty much all of the quilts in this post! My usual style is most like the quilt you received from your swap partner (and I kinda covet that one), but the one that I have the perfect spot for in my home is actually Spring Fling.

    Love them all!

  31. Anne says:

    My goodness! As I scrolled down to view each table topper, I saw winner after winner! My favorite is "George" the bird. I viewed some of your past posts and found that you had graciously offered a paper-pieced pattern for download. Thank you! George reminds me of my Quaker parrot, Teddy. He's not feeling great today, and I am worried about him. I think Teddy is still stressed after having his beak trimmed yesterday.

    You are so very talented, Cherry! Thanks for sharing your lovely work.

  32. leanne says:

    wow Cherry – so many fabulous minis – thanks for the giveaway – what a hard thing to ask though ! I love them all but perhaps the owl is my favourite πŸ™‚

  33. Quilt n Queen says:

    All your table toppers are awesome…and it is really difficult to choose a favorite…I luv 'Playing in the Rain'….it just luv the polka dot rubber boots and umbrella….it's just adorable. Thanks for the inspiration….and a chance to win 'Spring Fling'…enjoy your weekend!!

  34. Sharon says:

    Hi Cherry I have to tell you I really like The Hoot one but my favorite is Spring fling. I love blue birds and it just reminds me of happiness…..

  35. Just Carol says:

    I've been a follower for a while love your blog!) and I must say that first little owl is my favorite. BUT, in all fairness to the other minis, they are all pretty darn amazing!

  36. Kathy says:

    I love these!!! I must get me a frame and start these projects ASAP. George is my favorite and you are giving his pattern away. It must be my lucky day. I do love the owl but George is awesome.

  37. Kathy says:

    Spring Fling would be a great place to start my collection so I just joined your site as a follower. Now I'm off to get George's pattern… Woot Woot. Thanks

  38. Lee says:

    I for sure love George (my husbands name too!) and the colors you used for him. Thanks for the pattern and I love the Spring Fling one also – purple flowers are so pretty! thanks!

  39. DebbieM says:

    I love George the best, I am drawn to the colors of blue, green, purples. I'm not a huge fan of other colors and don't know why. George also was my father's name. Maybe that is it!! Thanks so much for sharing and for the giveaway. I appreciate it. All your work is very beautiful.

  40. JoAnne says:

    Your "Spring Fling" is my favorite, I love that little blue bird. It reminds me of the bird I watched in our tree this afternoon, he (she?)was singing his (her?) heart out!

  41. Rose says:

    It's a Hoot is my favorite. The colors are beautiful. I am a new follower and want to thank all the quilters who are participating in this blog hop.
