Strawberries in Season? At my house they are!
While the rest of the Northeast was getting belted with snow and single digit temperatures the past few days, I have been working on my Strawberry block from the Bountiful Life quilt. You probably thought this was done long ago, and understandably so since the last time you saw it was September! I am so happy to have this block finally completed. It was a lot harder than I thought it would be. Those 14 little strawberry caps were challenging!
I even added a couple of strawberry blossoms.
Yesterday as we drove by several farms in the area, their strawberry fields were blanketed under 8" of fresh snow that fell on Friday. I am glad my berries survived the winter weather! Most yards looked just this.
Now, onto the next block...
Stay warm under a handmade quilt... or in a basket of warm towels.
