Happy Sunday - Here is my Strawberry Fields quilts, which I'm calling Strawberry Wine because I spilled an entire glass of white wine on it while I was machine quilting it. Yes, you can quilt on a slightly damp quilt.
Thanks Lori! Her blog, Humble Quilts is always a great place to visit for inspiration. After much deliberation and trials, I decided on this red dot fabric, which reminded me of a strawberry.
I was too engrossed in the Masterpiece episode I was watching and didn't line up the third vertical row correctly, thus losing a little of it forever. I was quilting when I noticed it....how do I get so distracted? And no, I wasn't drinking wine at that time :)
My doll, Annie, seems to like it fine.
I chose this pretty green fabric with the butterflies for the backing.
This week I heard back from the Special Exhibits coordinator and my quilt "Lunar Pineapple" has been accepted to be in the special exhibit "Trash to Treasure" at the Long Beach and Houston Quilt Festivals. I'm very excited to be included and I look forward to seeing all 30 quilts.
After cutting out a white batting, I soon realized that black batting was the only way to go. So I arranged an emergency lunch meeting with Jill on Friday who had a black batting to give me. It was great because it was also her Birthday and we had a lovely time.
I'm quilting it in all over tea-cup pattern. It is difficult to see, but I'm hoping it will give it a nice texture.
Sneak peak at the backing.
This one is for Mary, who asked for a coco fix. All she's missing here is a glass of wine and a little applique'.
