A Day at the Park

This poor quilt has been waiting for it's binding since June! Finally it's finished and the day was right for some photos ... with lots of 'assistance' from Oliver, the resident quilt inspector!


 I received the fabrics and pattern as a kit from Sarah's Fig Tree Club.

 
 Strawberry Fields is still one of my favourite Fig Tree ranges and this quilt was quick and easy to piece. 


I love the large florals in the borders especially the one with the white background. 


I used the strawberry fabric, again on a white background, for the backing. 


Leanne quilted this one too. Yesterday I cut some fabric ready to start piecing Speck, this month's project for AYOS. Hoping to be back soon to show how it's looking.

  2. A beautiful finish. The spotty red binding finishes it off perfectly.
