Here is a project I had so much fun with. The title of the piece is "Berry Bliss," and the theme is "Fresh Picked." All my life I have loved our glorious Manitoba strawberries. Every year from June to mid-July the U-pick signs grace the highways of our province inviting locals and visitors to pick them fresh or buy them by the bucket. We spoil ourselves with strawberries on waffles, crepes, and desserts as well as in salads and jams, but there is nothing like biting into a juicy ripe strawberry picked fresh.This 12 x 12 art quilt was made of cotton fabrics using several fun art quilt techniques including hand appliqué, machine quilting, embroidery stitching and invisible thread play.
