(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!

    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.

    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.
    Sincerely, Trish

    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!

    I didn't even notice the scenery with your very pretty quilt!

    Now I would have NEVER noticed the bird poop!!haha and I LOVE the dark scenery…it almost appears to be black and white and it just makes your quilt colours pop!! What a gorgeous quilt!! Well done!

  14. Darlene June 18, 2011 at 2:42 pm #

    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.

  15. Kelli June 18, 2011 at 3:03 pm #

    Love, love, love it!!! I hear you on buying 2 jelly rolls, but that sure would be cute on a bed!

  16. lindsay's sew trying June 18, 2011 at 3:13 pm #

    I love this quilt. I was asking if you had a pattern for sell. I opened your patterns link and there it was! I am totally getting this pattern for my next quilt!

    Very pretty!

  27. Melissa June 19, 2011 at 1:59 am #

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

  28. Nancy June 19, 2011 at 10:56 am #

    Oh, I love it. Strawberry Fields is my new favorite fabric. That is until they make a new one.

  29. Angie June 19, 2011 at 2:17 pm #

    It is soooo lovely!! I want one too. :D

  30. randi June 19, 2011 at 2:43 pm #

  31. fiberdoodles June 19, 2011 at 4:14 pm #

    I love this fabric line and this quilt is BEAUTIFUL! I never noticed the background until you mentioned it because that quilt is so, so pretty. ;0)

  32. Matt and Kim Fairbanks June 19, 2011 at 6:03 pm #

    This quilt is SO cute! I am going to put this on my list of quilts to make someday! You're so talented.

  33. AlessandraLace June 19, 2011 at 7:13 pm #

    I love this quilt. hugs

  34. franzif June 19, 2011 at 8:33 pm #

    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.

  35. Eileen June 19, 2011 at 11:13 pm #

    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!

  36. laurier June 22, 2011 at 8:18 pm #

    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!

  37. daisy June 23, 2011 at 3:03 am #

    gorgeous – and the quilting is really fabulous – I'll have to purchase the kit when it arrives at the FQS – and of course its the great pattern that makes it !

  38. handmadebyclairebear June 25, 2011 at 3:33 pm #

    I like this a lot, now I want to make one too. Dang.


  39. Mary June 27, 2011 at 4:42 pm #

  40. Patchwork Penguin August 12, 2011 at 2:49 pm #

    It is lovely!!! Does it use a layer cake? I'm thinking about making a quilt for a colleague's daughter. Thanks!

  41. Karen October 4, 2011 at 8:19 pm #
