Default Cherry Fruit Pattern

Does anyone know of a cherry fruit quilt pattern (2 cherries with stems and leaves)? I want to make a cherry fruit quilt and cannot find a pattern. I thought I would make it with a pink background, giving it a 1930's look.

Thanks,

How timely - I just bookmarked this one the other day! It's a free download from McCall's quilting. It's lap-sized, but easy enough to enlarge it by making more blocks. It has 3 cherries with stems, just make 2 instead.

eta: this pattern uses covered buttons as the cherries, but you can use yo-yos or make your own applique circles. I like the idea of the buttons giving dimension to the quilt, but they're hard. I plan on stuffing appliqued circles with batting to get the dimension.

Yes, brilliant! That was one of those smack-myself-in-the-head and say "why didn't I think of that???" moments! Lol!
