Strawberry Picnic Quilt

Quilt size: 55″ x 55″
Lindsey here! I am excited to share this quilt with you today! When I saw Strawberry Biscuit, I fell in love!  I am fairly certain Elea designed this just for me! 😉  This fabric is so charming and the prints are absolutely adorable!  I wanted to really showcase all those playful prints when designing this quilt.  So I came up with a simple block, and went from there!
The blocks are very simple to put together, and actually require a partial seam.  Don’t let that scare you! Partial seams are so easy and really straight forward. Once you learn how to do them, you will wonder why you were ever afraid to try them!
One of my favorite parts of the entire quilt is the back.  I used this fantastic Cheater Print for the backing.  I am a sucker for patchwork, and this print just makes my heart happy!   The Cheater Print comes in three different color ways,  I used the pink color-way for the backing on my quilt.  I love the fact that I can use this quilt and show the back or the front and it looks like two different quilts!
