It's truly the very end of Week 5 of the Happy Quilting Marathon. I don't think I could have cut it much closer this week :) But I am super excited to share my Strawberry Social quilt all quilted and bound!!! And isn't it just Berry-Tastic!!!
I actually made this quilt top in a day. I started it at 5 am at the Lake Powell Retreat the day I was taking the class and I finished that evening. It truly was a quilt in a day. And then ya, it has just sat since November waiting to be quilted. So glad it is all done now ;)
And when it came time to quilt it, I decided to try something new. I started by quilting a simple loop de loop. Then I went back and echoed that loop trying to give it the effect of the twisting vines from strawberries. I really think it came out cute. Oh, and this is my all time favorite block of the quilt. The fabrics totally remind me of my little Strawberry Shortcake Doll from when I was little.
