Strawberries & Pineapples

I am designing some quilts for one of my local fabric shops to feature as quilt kits at our upcoming quilt show. This is my second attempt at a small strawberry quilt and I finally got the dimensions right. My hubby thinks I should call this on "Quilt Berries." 
I just need to stitch the binding down on this Whimsical Pineapples Quilt. The stitching will be my Slow Sunday Stitching this evening:
I went out of town this week for a training in Denver and did not have that much time in my sewing room. I did manage to embroider this label for my pineapple quilt and hope to get it quilted up this week. The yellow fabric will be an amazing backing for it!

  6. Quilt Berries would be a nice name for the quilt. You did a great job getting the berries to look like strawberries. Your simplified pineapples are wonderful too. Although I do like the pineapple on the label a LOT. Some day I may make one myself.

  7. Both make lovely summer quilts, laying by the pool or beach perhaps? Really like the label. Trying to come up with a repetitious one for mine now.
