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!
