Field Trip Full Size Quilt in Strawberry Fizz | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party!

Welcome to Finished {or Not!} Friday where you can share what you're working on and see what others have been making!

My Finish is some Secret Sauce Sewing from 2018 that I can now reveal!!  Meet Field Trips in Strawberry Fizz, a pattern I designed for Bluprint.

This design, not new or original in any way, was what I came up with when I was given a bundle of (19) 9" x WOF prints.  It was a fun challenge to come up with a design to meet exact fabric requirements.  See the featured red in the diagonal center of the blocks?  The pattern gives instructions on fabric placement so your quilt will have the same red chain look with the number of red fabrics given.  Of course it's strip pieced - I'm a stripper at heart!

This quilt was made in record time the first part of December.  The fabric for two quilts in Strawberry Fizz arrived on a Wednesday, I began the two quilts on Thursday, finished them on Sunday, and mailed them back to Bluprint on Monday.  I left for a month-long vacation to Arizona on Tuesday.  Phew!  Not every quilt deadline for Bluprint is this tight - the quilt was due the day I was returning from my trip.  {You'll see the other quilt in Strawberry Fizz next week....}

I still plan on making this pattern. I have the perfect fabric for it. One of these days it will move to the top of the list!

Pretty quilt, but far too many small pieces for me ;)
