ringo pie: quilt top

Here’s my Ringo Pie quilt bee quilt top, from round one (we’re now on round 2).  I feel really lucky to have all these beautiful blocks to look at.  I took forever to put the quilt top together, I tried so many times with different layouts.  In my mind I just wanted to make sure everyone liked it, but in the end I knew it would never get done that way.  So I bit the bullet, did some trimming and adding and here’s what I came up with.  I’m really glad to get these blocks out in the open and not stuck away in some plastic bin. I choose a ‘dessert’ theme!!

Bee members (round 1):
Penny – Sew Take a Hike
Ayumi – Pink Penguin
Kerry – Verry Kerry Berry
Amber – One Shabby Chick
Amy – Badskirt
Erica – Craftyblossom
Lynne – Lily’s Quilts
Quilt It
Little Miss Shabby
Lisa – Vintage Modern Quilts

Thanks all!

I have the back together too, here’s a little sneak peek of it.  It’ll probably be a while before the quilt is done, as I plan to hand quilt it.  Wish me luck!  I’m excited to do it, just need to get myself a thimble now! ♥

ps, the cupcake  is a modified version of Sew- Ichigo‘s Button It Pattern! The heart was inspired by this quilt and these pillows.

    Love this so much! Yours is among my favorite theme’s from round one. Can it be because of all the mouth watering blocks?
    ; ) Wish you best of luck and many good hours of quilting it.

    WOW! It’s amazing! If only I had the time, patience, and skill.

  20. I’m not a quilter at all but this looks amazing. It turned out really great. I can’t imagine all the patience this took. You really nailed this one.

  21. Good luck hand quilting! I love the Thimble-it silicone oval stickers you put where you need the protection. So much more comfortable for me than wearing a thimble.
