Strawberry Summer

 This beautiful quilt was made by Debra Welsh.  The pattern is 'Strawberry Summer' by Blackbird Designs.  Debra attended a workshop in Warnambool with the designers and has fallen in love with the freedom of their designs.  She has also used the fabrics that the Blackbird girls designed a range called 'Nell's Flower Shop'.
I have outlined all of the applique on this quilt and used very freeform heart pattern in both the strawberry flowers and the hearts in colour co-ordinated threads.  The pieced blocks have a feather wreath in the their centre with a large circular pattern in the corners, this circular pattern has then been repeated behind the applique blocks.
