Strawberry Splendor

Springtime is here, and so are strawberries!


Strawberry Splendor quilted wall hanging

Fresh strawberries, straight from the farm, and oh so sweet! Let's honor this luscious berry with a beautiful wall hanging pattern, Strawberry Splendor - more details and a discount code are within the post!

This pattern is fairly straight forward - it uses 11" paper pieced berries, appliqued flowers, and pieced ric rac chains. The berries are easy to paper piece as there's no seams to match, no points to worry about, and as a special bonus, all the fabric piece sizes for paper piecing are listed for you - no need to figure it out yourself! Put it all together and there's sweet homage to everyone's favorite, strawberries! Just divine!

Along with those big berries, there's beautiful quilting to enhance the charm of this quilt. As in the preview last Wednesday, the background has straight line quilting, which changes direction throughout the quilt, but stays the same direction around each strawberry.

When viewed up close, there are groups of three perpendicular lines evenly spaced in the background, adding a bit more interest to the negative space.

Simple outlining makes the flowers and leaves stand out. The strawberries have diagonal crosshatching with a little bar at each crossing, giving the impression of a seed.

Gracing each red corner border are motifs of strawberries and leaves, enclosed by micro-stippling to make them pop.  Definitely a lovely addition to the strawberry theme!

  2. We must be thinking alike-I have a strawberry runner I am hoping to get done soon. And this week and last one of our stores has had them on sale. Of course they are so much better picked right from the field. Your wall hanging is so 'sweet'.

  11. Absolutely luscious. Reminds me of their perfume while sitting in a row of them at a U-Pick farm. The Quilting really enhances the design, especially on the back.

    1. Thank you so much Paula! If I had been willing to drive 1 1/2 hours, I could have had strawberry fields in the background, and baskets full of berries!

  12. I love this quilt!!! Did you really only go around the center flower to make it lift up? It almost looks 3D and coming up and off the quilt!

    1. Sure did. Just outlined the flower and added a 1/4" border around the inner edge of the block.
      Thanks for stopping by!
