Briar Rose Quilt

I have a finished quilt to show!  I actually finished this a while ago and forgot to share!  I gave it away and I guess it slipped my mind.  
I love Heather Ross, so when she released her Briar Rose line (first in a LONG time), I couldn't wait to put it to use.  

Pattern found in this book.  (as a sidenote, I can't buy EVERY quilt book out there.  There are so many now, and most are good.  I usually check them out from my local library first and if I love it, then I consider buying it.)
The pattern is a modern take on the log cabin.  If you look closely, you can see each block is made up of small log cabin blocks.
I quilted it in circles, first seen here, except I tried to do it free-motion, and it's kind of sloppy.  I feel a little bad about that, but not bad enough to not give it away.
 Bound in a pretty orange, (looks like mac and cheese), which worked perfectly with the other prints. 
 The strawberries from this line are my favorite, so I used the pink ones on the back.

Soo pretty! Love how it has a vintage feel to it even though the fabrics and design are lovely and modern!

It is sitting on my couch as we speak as we love love love it!!!! Thanks again Net. I'm amazed at how you can kind of break traditional matchy matchy quilting rules and have it still turn out so beautifully.

I've seen a few Briar Rose pieces, but none that made me inhale as this one did! It's totally wonderful and I wanted to crawl right under it! BRAVO!

I've been a lurker for quite awhile and have enjoyed your blog and your quilts so much. Your new quilt is lovely. The white prints add a sweetness and antique feel.
