Strawberry Fields quilt

I love the muted, softly washed vintage colours of many of Joanna Figueroa's fabric ranges. Her Figtree & Co fabrics and patterns are amongst my all-time favourites. When she recently released her 'Strawberry Fields' range, I was in love all over again! 

I finished my 'Strawberry Fields' quilt top this week, which is now with Belinda-the-weaver-of-quilting-magic.
You may remember this solitary little block a few months ago.
Thankfully, it found some friends and they finally got their act together to produce this:
Sorry, the photos are awful as it was a very windy day and this quilt is very big - the biggest I've made to date.
I am thankful Belinda is quilting it and not me! I will post some nicer photos when it is quilted, bound and more photo worthy.

In the meantime, I will endeavour to resist Joanna's newest line, 'California Girl'. It will be a tough ask!

  21. Just discovered your lovely blog, via Flickr, via pintrest!

    Totally off the wall question- but where did you find the 'Imagine' hanger which is holding your block? I LOVE IT. It is in your Strawberry Fields post on 6 Nov 11.

    1. Janice, the hanger came from a local gardening supplies business. It is metal and meant for outdoor use I think, but I have it in my sewing room. It gets used for hanging all manner of things :) This is the website link:
