Ponchatoula, LA hosts an annual outdoor quilt expo in October.  BerryPatch Preservation for Quilting & Visual Arts produces the show and I designed “Strawberry Stroll” for the 2005 expo.  Expo-ers can buy a ticket to play “Fat Quarter Stroll” during Expo.  They are provided a map with participating merchants (mostly antique shops) that are hosting a basket of FQ’s featured in the design as well as a copy of the pattern.  They visit each shop to pick up the FQ there to add to their bag and at the end of the day they have all the fabric to complete the quilt top.  It’s been a very popular activity at the expo.

Since Ponchatoula is well-known for their delicious strawberries, I used strawberries as my theme for this pattern.  You can learn more about the expo at this site:
