Completed: Strawberry Fields Baby Quilt

'Strawberry Garden', red, pink and white vintage-style baby quilt

Aaaah.  How are you all doing?  We’ve just got back from our summer holiday, so I’m feeling suitably… relaxed…  I’ve been without my sewing machine for over a week, so been doing a bit of tapestry instead.  Slowly….

So I don’t really have anything new to show you, but I remembered I completely forgot to share this little quilt I made a couple of months ago – it was a commission (sqeeeee!!) from a friend of a friend.  I was a little hesitant to accept at first, as life is already pretty busy, but then I realised that it was an opportunity to be seized.   So I seized it!

The brief was ‘Something about 2′ square, with strawberries.’  I cast about a bit for coordinating fabrics – I didn’t have any strawberry prints, but managed to find a decent selection online, including a tiny scrap of this large scale vintage print.  There was only enough for 3 large squares, which helped to determine the final design.

I kept it pretty simple, although I also pieced the back in one large-scale block to make it kind of double-sided.

Pretty proud of those points, actually ;), though you can’t see them that clearly here!  It was lovely to send it off all wrapped up to its new owner.

We’re all back home now, so I can get back to all my half-done projects.  There are many…

Hope you’re all enjoying the end of summer!  See you soon 🙂

      Thank you so much! I have to say, I absolutely loved making it – it’s made be a bit quilting-obsessed at the moment!
