|Strawberry Fields 2011 Fat Quarter Shop Designer Mystery Block of the Month. Pieced and Quilted by Anita LaHay of Daydreams of Quilts. Started in 2011. Finished in 2016.|
The first post I have on this blog about this quilt was written on August 6, 2012.This quilt has been basted and draped over a chair since I finished piecing it and I posted it on Instagram on May 30, 2015. So that means it's been sitting for almost a year waiting to be quilted. Yikes! Anyway, I spent the majority of the long weekend quilting it. I finished quilting this morning and put the binding on (machine sewn... hand sewing was not going to happen.) And now this quilt is washed, dried and on my bed! I am thrilled!
