And ANOTHER UFO done. Woo hoo! Am I on a roll or what??!!
Guilt played a part in getting this quilt done. When the second anniversary of this lovely young couple had passed and I hadn't yet finished their wedding quilt, I knew it was time to do whatever it took to push past the creative block and get 'er dun!!
I will upload a photo when I get a picture taken of the quilt but here's a teaser...it's an original pattern using about 3 charm packs. Each charm is surrounded by sashing. The border is neutral and has appliqued strawberries and a vine on it (hence the name). What was making me 'stuck' was the thought of satin stitching around all of those blessed berries and strawberry tops/leaves. I broke free and did raw edge applique which will hopefully add some texture when it gets washed and fluffed/frayed a bit. This has given me one less excuse to finish my Tuscan Hillside quilt which may very well be the next project back on the machine. It also has a vine and some grape leaves on it.
I am so pleased with the final result of this latest IFFI (I finally finished it!) and I hope that this wonderful young couple will get much enjoyment from their Strawberry Fields Forever quilt.
Until next time... when I will hopefully have snapped a photo and uploaded it...but not tonight.
Anxious to see it. I love the IFFI phrase...did you coin that or has it been around and I missed it. Can I borrow it?ReplyDelete
IFFI is not my own phrase. Go for it! I've seen it in a few places. Just uploading the photo now.ReplyDelete
