Briar Rose Quilt - In Progress

Finally, finally got around to cutting and making a quilt top with the briar rose fabric that Windham Fabrics sent me. (if you follow on instagram @sirbubbadoo, you've seen the progess, sorry for being so slow to update the blog). Because some of the squares weren't a full 5", they were chopped short I opted to go with a layout that could accommodate these shortened squares. I also added in some KONA colors to make it brighter.

Now I am auditioning backing options, probably going to go with minky...which means I have to wash this puppy. Should I serge the edges? to keep it more together? I've washed others and they do okay but thinking that maybe it would be even better by serging them first. Hmmm.

These strawberries (comes in 4 colorways) still remain my favorite

cannot wait until the full yardage gets here, hopefully soon!
