I decided to use fabrics from my stash so I pulled out lots of bits and pieces in soft vintage-ish colours, mainly shades of cream and pinky-brown, with a few bits of blue thrown in. Some of the fabrics have strawberries and patchwork imagery, making me think of afternoon tea on the lawn.

Then trying out arrangements for the nine patch blocks.
I machine quilted using lots of separate motifs - they show up more on the back - and brought the blue to the front with a self binding.
