Another one done! First of all, thank you all for your creative quilt name ideas! It was a tough choice…I almost went with Strawberry Jam (thank you, mom of 3) but kept hearing the “Strawberry Fields Forever” song humming in my head! Whoever suggested the Beatles name idea, I’d love to give you cred when my MBS tutorial posts, so if you have a name and wherever you’re from, please let me know. 🙂

As mentioned before, I decided to treat myself with this one and have it professionally quilted! (I was getting tired of quilting stipples on everything!). It turned out absolutely gorgeous 🙂 It was quilted by Darlene Girton at GirtonQuilting.com (unfortunately her website is currently down). She’s from Maple Valley, Washington and I’m looking forward to working with her again! Darlene quilted strawberries all over the quilt – you can see them if you zoom into one of the photos.
Betsy from Seattle suggested naming this quilt ‘Summer Picnic’ which couldn’t be more appropriate, especially looking at the photo above! It’s the perfect picnic quilt!
I really love this pattern (obviously, I’ve made two quilts using it already!). It’s a wonderful pattern because each block is unique to your own making…there are no precise measurements you need to cut for this quilt, simply stack, whack and sew! The tutorial for this quilt will be posting on Moda Bake Shop within the next few weeks. The same day it posts on MBS I’ll host a Layer Cake giveaway as this pattern only requires 1 Layer Cake to make the quilt top. So please stay tuned!
Thanks for stopping by! Happy Quilting!
