Gooseberry Pie Quilt | Finished {or Not!} Friday Linky Party!

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

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 #SecretSauceSewing!  I can finally show you Gooseberry Pie, a pieced star design made from HSTs and the sweetest floral fabrics in aqua, red, pink, green, and navy.  

Gooseberry Pie was designed over 14 months ago.   Sometimes it takes fabric a long time to make the required number of trips around the world before it can be released from the fabric gremlins.  :)

Gooseberry Pie has been kitted by Bluprint and measures 84" square, a full/double bed size.  It would also be a beautiful coverlet on a larger bed.  

The smallest of the HSTs in the quilt aren't overly small, and they're mixed with a lot of very large HSTs, so the quilt top goes together fairly quickly.  I know it does - I made this quilt and a queen size quilt in this same fabric collection in five days, from start to finish.  I do NOT recommend that you make it at that speed, that's for sure.  :)

Pattern:  Gooseberry Pie
Size:  84" x 84"
Fabric:  Garden Party by Bluprint
Backing:  A print from the collection.
