Strawberry Fields, Forever

It's not the Beatles song. I thought I'd never be finished with this quilt, that the project would stretch on out into forever. But now I'm finished.

If life can't be a bed of roses, will un lit de fraises do?

My grandmother picked up this vintage cross-stitched quilt-top featuring wreaths of strawberries on a field of cream at some estate sale years ago. Amy and I have been quilting on it off and on for seven years, and finally, this summer, I bound of the edges in pink.
