Finish it up Friday, Week 1 (On Saturday)

The production line continues this week. I have finished the binding on my Strawberry Fields quilt! This quilt is for my MIL for Christmas. That's one ticked off the list!


Of course just as I was heading outside to take some pictures, it started to rain again!


Love the colours in Strawberry Fields.


So romantic and soft. I had originally hoped to back the quilt in this print in the slate, but I couldn't find it anywhere! I love this backing in pond too - I think it looks lovely. And who could go past a lovely gingham binding?


Gorgeous all over stipple quilting by the talented Viv of Highway Cottage.

So this is my big finish for Friday! Washed and dried and simply delicious. Even if I do say so myself. We've got some strawberries on our plants growing. They're green for now but I can't wait for them to  ripen :)

Have a wonderful weekend! If you need inspiration for the weekend, Amanda Jean is hosting a party! So I am joining in!
