Miss Strawberry #2. Yes, she has been a pleasure to work with. If you recognize these fabrics.....they are also in Miss Strawberry, #2's more cantankerous younger sister! I have had so much fun quilting and then photographing #2!!
I used freehand wavy lines to quilt her. It went so smoothly. I am really happy with the way she turned out. I also used a 6oz polyester batting this time. She is a lot more cuddly and soft then Miss S #1!
We took a ride to one of the local thrift stores. I had no idea that there would be so many photo opportunities there! I really like the 'Nancy Hines Hospice Thrift Store' in Clovis, CA. They have a ton of venues set up with furniture and knick-knacks! The carpet is even green, it looks like grass for my picnic quilts!!
I am really starting to get the hang of machine quilting. I think I am going to like it as I get more and more comfortable with it!! I have one quilt at the binding stage and another left to quilt and finish. I am hoping to have them ready for Wednesday turn in. I only work on one project at a time, so we shall see.

This turned out great!! I love the braids - it makes it look like little rows of strawberry plants. ;-)
She looks truly scrumptious Vicki!!
You get so much accomplished, Vicki! That braid pattern is really a great one for scraps, isn't it.
very very cute!
And I like the french braid pattern too... (note to self: make another french braid quilt soon)
She turned out wonderful. Makes me want to go strawberry picking! I can just taste those juicy berries when I look at your scrumptious quilt. I love the organic straight line quilting. Will have to try that. Is it easier than using the walking foot?
Love the organic wavy lines, I mean :)
