Listed is my new quilt pattern called "Strawberry Banke" by Little Louise Designs. This pattern is written for use with Layer Cakes or Honey Buns but can also be a great pattern to use up some of that stash of yours! The sizes range for baby to King size.
quilt sizes are:
Crib - 45"x 60" Throw - 60" x 75 Twin - 75" x 90" Queen - 90" x 104" King - 119" x 119"
This is a great pattern for the beginner quilter! Very simple to do and would look great in any style fabric! The pattern includes easy to follow, fully illustrated, step by step instructions.
About the name:
During a recent visit to Portsmouth, New Hampshire we visited the “Strawbery Banke” living history museum. There we toured the quaint New England seaport homes and learned much about lives of the early immigrants who lived there. On the banks of the Piscataqua River, which spills into the Atlantic Ocean, wild strawberries grew that were said to be as big as your fist. Thus the name of the village came to be Strawbery Banke.
The fabrics used in my cover quilt are a Layer Cake from Strawberry Fields by Fig Tree & Co. for Moda.
