fruit basket turnover

I am hoping that 2011 will be the year of completing some UFOs that lingered throughout 2010. Here is the first of 3 that I have gotten back from the quilter and actually finished the binding. I call it Fruit Basket turnover because the string fabrics are a variety of fruit, floral and bug prints, and some ginghams. This quilt started in Ami Simms' workshop on string piecing and uses here pattern. (Thanks!). The back is a large scale tic tac toe block based on Jan 2010 Block Lotto "liberated quilting" block. Thanks, Sophie!

This will be our picnic quilt. Thanks to Mindy Washburn for the quilting. Not sure if it is visible in the photo, but the quilting uses variegated thread, which is stiking against the black.
