Sunday's Strawberry Sundae...

It started with a Strawberry Fields jelly roll and a fabulous green dot print (that wasn't even part of the line - but matched perfectly) and it grew from there...

I stitched the quilt top back in the summer, but didn't know how I should quilt it...

Rather than give it an allover stipple, I left the 9 patch blocks unquilted and thought that an old fashioned tie would add to the sweetness. I think I was right.


Oh, I'm just so close to finishing this little pretty off... like a yummy strawberry sundae, I can almost taste it!

Too bad I ran out of thread and can't quite finish it tonight.
But tomorrow's another day... and it's one step closer to strawberry season!

It's so adorable; I love it! I just tried my first free-motion quilting on a runner today...boy, was THAT a disaster! My stitch length was all over the place but I pushed on through it and convinced myself not too look too closely at it. Guess I need to practice some.

Hugs,
Pam

Charming quilt with yummy springlike fabrics. Thanks. It's inspiring! I'm thinking of a knot dress for my 3 yr. old granddaughter's birthday is just the project for a snowy winter day today! You got me going!
