Strawberry Bush?

So, my mother bought me one of those strawberry planter things, so I bought some plants. Now I have 8 great bushy plants with no flowers, no fruit, just really big leaves. (they look great! :D ) Am I doing something wrong? They are getting full sun 7-9 hours daily, and I am watering them every day. Does anyone have any idea what I'm doing wrong? (oh, i did use an organic fertilizer when i first planted them about 3 weeks ago and the type of strawberry is a Quinalt.) Any help would be great!

I could be completely wrong here but I don't think that strawberries fruit in the first year. Anyone?
Begin again before you end and start the process over again.

A quick search via Google (Quinault + strawberry) reveals that the Quinault is an ever-bearer, so its yield will be spread out from June until fall/frost.

Glad you have those blossoms!
