Then a couple years ago I was introduced to Instagram (you can find me there as freshdewdrops : ) and a whole new world of inspiration opened up (as if Pinterest wasn't enough ;) Anywho, in June of this year inspiration struck when my eyes lighted on a pattern by @corianderquilts called Prairie Blooms. I had found it! Pattern match for my Strawberry Fields jelly roll! Simple strip pattern yet pretty and unique. I set to work almost immediately.
Working out my strip sets.
Laying out blocks.
Nicely ironed quilt top (getting close to finish : )
Gentle wave quilting for the win - adds a bit of softness and flow.
It was SO much fun to finally make with this jelly roll. I thoroughly enjoyed every step and working with all the different prints. Here are a few of my favorite sets:
The red check is the best red check ever designed, in my opinion.
Love the buttery yellows and the not-blue-not-green pond color.
It's not often that I like a fabric line because of its name and actually love its colors and prints and everything, but Strawberry Fields has it all. It's special.
Strawberry season is one of my favorite times of year. This quilt will always hold a special place in my heart as it reminds me of sun-warmed strawberries, green grass, juice stained fingers, early summer breezes, and best of all - good times with my family.
Who can resist a cute rolled quilt : )
or a quilt blowing in the breeze?
