Strawberry Fields in Progress





I am so enjoying this quilt.  It's a QAL called Strawberry Fields run by Lori last April.  There are a million pieces to piece but if you approach it 'methodically' it's a breeze I assure you.  I find Lori's QALs are somewhat challenging in terms of skill building and patience!  She surely has a knack of making quilts that pushes the envelope!  Not that I am complaining of course :)

After I complete Strawberry Fields I would have completed all 3 QALs that Lori has conducted.  Here's Midnight Stars and Cheddar Cheese & Crackers revisted.


Now to look into quilting them?

    Graet pics. Now I "get" how the red zig-zags are achieved.

  4. You are really moving along with the Strawberry Fields SAL... Since I am using mine as a Leader/Ender it will take me longer of course. But I am enjoying it so very much.....

  5. A million pieces for sure! This is the only one of Lori's quilt patterns that I made up but still have hopes of doing the other two. You did good!

  10. BJ, I just love the way you have all those patchwork pieces organised in a tray while you work the quilt! Great idea! Can I copy? *wink*

    I usually just have them in boxes.
