Shortcake

IMG_88571

(Sorry for the ugly scenery, I took these pictures when it was still really brown and bleh outside!)

I started this one back in April…and I was so excited and gung ho about it for about a week..and then I felt kind of eh about it…and now I like it again. It’s my cycle of quilt love. This one is from the Strawberry Fields line by Fig Tree Quilts…made with a jelly roll. Now that its done I wish I would have made it a Queen size…but that would have meant buying 2 jelly rolls and I just couldn’t will myself to spend $80 bucks for it at the time.

It’s a really soft & pretty color combo..these photos don’t do it justice seeing as how the background was still brown and ugly when I took these photos….and there is bird poop in almost every picture. See?

Dang bird poop.

You can find Strawberry Fields here, here, and here. You can find the pattern here, or here.

Pin It!

This is really gorgeous. I like the soft colors. The gray/brown back drop makes the quilt look even lovelier. The bird poop...well...never mind.

Melissa said...

Very pretty! Where did you get the pattern for the quilt? I have a jelly roll that I picked up about 8 month ago, I've been trying to decide what to do with it. The fabrics would look great in this pattern! I love your color choices, every quilt you do is in colors I love! I guess thats because I just love color, no neutral for me!

I just love your quilt!! I have this line of fabric in a layer cake, do you think I could use that?
Have a lovely weekend.

I love the pattern you used. Beautiful!

Every time you show a new quilt, I think to myself, "THIS is the next one I want to make"! This is no exception.
You also bring up a good point that quilting is not cheap. So often people will want me to help them make a quilt for their beds to save money. HA! If that's the case, run to the store and buy the big bedding set and you've saved yourself some money.
Only quilters know the great expense that goes into each one, which is always worth it!

This is definitely a favorite of mine. I just cut out my Strawberry Fields jelly roll to make it for me. :-) I've had no quilting mojo for months so I'm hoping this might jump start it.

It's beautiful!!! You are so talented! Do you quilt your own quilts or do you have someone to quilt them for you?

Nancy said...

I love this quilt. hugs

franzif said...

I like it very very much. And I like that it's made with only one jelly roll. 'Though here in Germany the prices for jelly rolls are insane... I like the pattern and maybe that's something for the queen sized quilt I like to do someday for our bed.

Eileen said...

Lovely. Such beautiful fabrics and love the pattern. Thanks for showing it. Think the bleak background actually shows off the contrast of your beautiful quilt really well!

laurier said...

Love the quilt! I am currently working on a quilt from your pattern myself. I am making the throw size for a picnic quilt to enjoy!

daisy said...
