In January as part of my involvement in the Honey Pot Bee I shared a tutorial for how to make large strawberry quilt block (click here to get tutorial) based on the strawberry quilt block tutorial that Bec Skyberries had shared on her blog. I really loved making these blocks and I had a special recipient in mind while making them so I was really happy to be able to gift in person while on holidays visiting my family.

Raylee (of Sunflower Quilting) quilted a lovely edge-to-edge flower design on the quilt to mimic the strawberry plant flowers that turn into strawberries. Raylee used Aurifil’s Light Sand (#2000) in 50wt for the quilting and it just blends so beautifully into the Natural Essex Linen background. The strawberries are predominantly Karen Lewis Blueberry Park for Robert Kaufman and I love how they all play together. 

Speaking of playing together, this was the first time ever I got to share the joys of quilt photography with my family. My brother kindly volunteered his skills to capture the images which did two things: 1. put me behind the quilt for a change and B. gave my Father and I some quality arm burning time together.

I love this photo of the two of us wrangling the quilt. It reminds me of all the times I either held a fish for him or took a photo of him holding a fish when I was a kid and he needed photos for his business. I also love that it shows the backing of the quilt and the texture that the quilting pattern created.

Another new experience, having the Little Man walk through a photo. I understand why they say never work with kids or animals! *wink*

And because I’m on holiday I have none of the details about sizing, or what fabrics are on the back or what was used for the binding. Nothing. You’re just going to have to enjoy the quilt candy. Oh the horror! *wink*
