Cherry tree blossomsMy cerulean blue fabric wants to be a sky, and I will let it do so. It will be the sky background of a cherry blossom applique. I am quite happy to follow the fabric’s lead. This will be beautiful.

I find anytime I listen to the fabric and the patches, my quilts succeed. If I try to impose my own will on the material, I fail.

The mock-up I’ve uploaded uses a cherry tree branch design from Dover Clip Art, and includes a sample of my fabric, mixed with a darker blue. I cannot wait to continue with this project!
