Strawberries

While I did not get to stitch on these this weekend -- here is the project I want to work on....


My Strawberries.  Photographs don't do the fabrics justice.  I even moved the blocks outside trying to get the lighting bright enough to let you see how much I love them.  I read journals of other people who made the quilt who talked about not having the fabrics work together.  Kind of made me weary of trying different fabrics outside a fabric line.  I just didn't want to waste fabric.  But I also realized I didn't want a cookie-cutter quilt this time - It was mine and I wanted it different.  I chose fabrics I loved and decided I had never see a bowl of strawberries all the same color...

The plaid is going to be the binding and backing and the green piece is a half yard print being auditioned for a border.

Heading into the week with the right attitude.   Work sponsors the fun on weekends.

I like the strawberry blocks very much. I have not seen this design before. Best looking pieced design I have seen.

I think your fabric colors are beautiful. They are so different from what the pattern cover shows. Very nice; looking forward to seeing your finished quilt.
