When I first saw Strawberry Fields, my interest in it was more for my sister-in-law than myself. She decorates with strawberries in her kitchen, and I knew I wanted placemats or a table runner for her.
I made her one this weekend with the largest of my scraps from my quilt. These were my largest pieces, and I could still only cut them 3 1/4", so you can imagine the size of the other ones I saved.
And as you can see, even with a piece this small, I still wasn't able to keep my colors separated. I just have a mental block - I can't seem to do scrappy!
I used Kona celery for the backing and size 20 crochet thread for the quilting.
Even though my hand quilting is so very far from perfect, or straight, or even good, I still love looking at it
And yes, Kim is my hero. I've been beyond blessed in the in-law department.
Thank you to everyone who commented on Strawberry Patch, the quilt top. Many very encouraging words!
