Strawberry Fields Brick Quilt

I've decided I have NO creativity at all when it comes to naming my quilts - none.

But I do have a completed quilt to show - and I feel like its been so long in the making!

I finished this quilt top in July of 2011.  Using this great pattern from the Moda Bake Shop Finally got around to quilting it in November 2012 - and completed the binding on the plane ride to California last week.

I love this quilt - I love this fabric line - Strawberry Fields by Fig Tree.  Probably my all time favorite Fig Tree line.  I used the pinky gingham for the binding and love it!

When I did quilt it I was so excited to get it done - it was one of the first handful of quilts I quilted up and we were playing with patterns.  The Rose Panto pattern was so big - 22 inches - and we left it that way.  A great lesson for me to learn to pay attention to the sizing of patterns!  I loved the rose - but think it would have looked better a bit smaller.  

I still love this quilt - the bright fun cheery colors - perfect for spring and just in time to go up on my quilt rack.  I'm so happy its done.

visiting from crazy mum quilts. This is gorgeous. You used the plane ride well to get the binding done. I have given up on hand binding and do it all on machine.

I was thinking of doing this with my layer cake of strawberry fields, too. I went nutty over that line. my first ever fat quarter stack purchase. just picked up some more yardage on clearance. and I haven't used a bit of it yet! that quilting pattern is very pretty. and so big!
