Hanging Lanterns Quilt

I have had a great time quilting Cherry's wonderful Hanging Lanterns Quilt.  The Hanging Lanterns Quilt is a pattern from Sarah Fielke's book Quilting:  from Little Things.  Cherry said that the making of her quilt has been a labour of love, spending so much time hand appliquéing that she couldn't face hand quilting it as well.  Cherry certainly did a wonderful job piecing the quilt and it was a pleasure to quilt. 

The quilting elements chosen were continuous curves on the dresden plate segments, loops in the blue background fabric and figure eights through the centres of the dresden plates.

Cherry has made this quilt for her young daughter - I am sure she will love it.  I certainly love the strawberry and chocolate colour combination on the blue background!


  1. Love this quilt - such a great selection of fabrics and a great design! I also really love the loopy quilting, it's perfect!

  2. Love the loopy quilting Karen and love the colours of this quilt, gorgeous!
