Strawberries and Cream

Strawberries and Cream ~ 60" X 68"
I finally finished piecing and quilting this scrappy quilt from years ago, it was inspired by an antique quilt that I saw at a  Quilt Guild "show and tell" and fell in love with. I drafted the pattern and set to work. This may just be one of my favorite all-time quilts. 
I backed it with this precious strawberry print. Naming this one was a natural. 
I don't usually save selvages but just look as what I trimmed off the backing. 🍓 I can't bear to toss it.
I quilted it with Willow Leaf's "Plumage", a pantograph by Jodi Beamish. 
And remember how I mentioned that I might just round more corners now 
that I'm no longer afraid of bias binding? Well, I couldn't help myself! 
Life is Good!

Up next: A Ride Along

Beautiful such Cheery colors and memories of summer with strawberries and cream,
You have been busy in the sewing room the last couple days!.
Love the sleeping bag for the American girl, I haven’t seen their catalog in years and a camper! It was just a wardrobe trunk when my daughter was that age

It is such a sweet thing, and the rounded corners match its soft look. Very pretty!
