Strawberry Fields Forever

I feel like I've talked about this quilt so much in the making that there isn't much left to say.  I started it on the Boston MQG retreat in March and it's been amazing to watch a stack of fabrics transformed into a quilt.  I have to admit this wasn't my favorite Heather Ross line but I love how sweet it turned out.

And I'm still ridiculously pleased with how this butterfly quilting came out.  It truly makes the quilt!

After using up pretty much every last scrap making all the things with this collection I was a bit stuck for what to use on the binding.  Nothing I had left was working for me so I dug into my stash and came up with this Joel Dewberry woodgrain.  Perfection!!!

Hanging out with this week's Finish it Up Friday by Crazy Mom Quilts and a finish for Q2 of the 2016 Finish Along.

  1. Love it, the green & pink remind me of the comforter I had growing up.

  2. Congratulations on a lovely finish! Isn't it wonderful when a quilt has so many special components? The binding is perfect!
