Come on in quilters, have a seat while I serve you up a big ole glass of refreshing Strawberry Lemonade. Oh no this isn't the store bought Lemonade, it's homemade...YUMMY!
Freshly squeezed lemons with big ole chunks of macerated strawberries. Nothing says warmer weather any better than lemonade. Add a little strawberry liquor and the world is much better place, well in my world anyway. It's so nice to finally have this quilt finished. I love everything about it. The buttery yellow and tickle me pinks feel so springy and girly. I learned something new while quilting this one. Normally when quilting I do tons of ruler work which takes forever. This one has very little ruler work and quilted up super fast. I think I might have found a new love....NO RULER WORK!
Over the past few months I've been talking to another quilter about our ever growing fabric stash and what will become of it when we're gone. Well I don't want to leave this world with a ton of stash hoarded away that no one will love as much as I do. So I've been very carefully watching what I buy. Most frame quilters would rather have one solid piece of backing fabric. Sure that's ideal, but why not use up what we have? Since this is a scrappy quilt, why not make it 100% scrappy with a scrappy backing. It didn't take long to find what I needed in my stash.
The 100% poly batting helps to show off the quilting. And unlike cotton batting this quilt will keep you warm. It's a win win in my book.
Once again I used a super tiny quarter inch binding to finish off the quilt. The binding fabrics were cut from the excess backing needed when quilting on a frame.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed the lemonade! You can find a quick recipe for this quilt here.
