Yum! Want a Slice of Strawberry Pie???

This one is a beauty, if I do say so myself! I even signed and dated it, making note of pattern and designer since I used a real pattern this time and didn't just fly by the seat of my pants. This is the first time I have put identifying information on one of my quilts. But, I hand quilted this one and I have to say that I am very pleased with it. Don't you just love that binding? It reminds me of juicy fruit gum!
This is a close up of the fabrics after being washed. Love the binding fabric and how it really makes the front of the quilt sparkle! I have applied bias binding before when I have purchased it, but never made any and applied it from scratch. I am digging the diagonals! Plus, I learned a new way of doing the corners at Silver Thimble Club that is SO EASY and SO PREDICTABLE that I am sold on it!

I was hoping that this photo would show the quilting in the center of each square, but it's not really easy to see. Just imagine hearts in the center of each square! Now to cuddle up and dream of spring time!

You know it girl! You design and teach them and I will make them.

I am holding my breath for Georgia Hoe Down!
