Strawberry🍓Season

Don't you love strawberries?!!! Today's blog is a combo of Strawberry Season, Mother's Day and a new quilt!!!
Quilt Info:
Pattern: Amalie Supersized from GE Designs
Fabrics: Strawberry Season by Briar Hill Designs for Robert Kaufman
Size: 88" x 100"
Batting: Quilters Dream 100% Wool
Thread: Glide--Cardinal
Pantograph: Strawberry Champagne ⤵️ from Sew Shabby Quilting
Can you see the strawberries in the quilting, amidst the bubbles and swirls?!⤴️⤵️
Interesting Info: I got this fun box of quilter's goodies⤵️ from my DH!!! He ordered it from GE Designs--they had 10 different fabric boxes to pick from for Mother's Day gifts!!! My DH chose the "Strawberry Season" box, and I love it!!!

The box contained 16 coordinating half-yards of fabric, a quilt & a table runner pattern, arrow stickers, a seam guide ruler, a large spool of Aurifil thread, a GE reusable bag and some GE malted milk balls! What a fun surprise on Mother's Day morning!!!
I made a different quilt pattern than came in the box--Amalie Supersized, which showcases the fabrics in a big way. Check out these fun strawberry related fabrics!⤵️
More details from the bottom right corner of the quilt!⤵️
I pieced together various red yardage for the back of my quilt.⤵️
GE Designs usually does these "Perfect Pairing" gift boxes twice a year, at Mother's Day and for Christmas. 
So glad to have this quilt finished and ready for Strawberry Season!!!
Grace and peace!!! ~Nancy
