|Strawberry block finally done!|
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.
Your block is wonderful. Those strawberry caps do look challenging but you did a great job with them.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Ellen.. there are more stawberries to come in other blocks - so I am well practiced!Delete
Well done. I love eating strawberries and they start to come into season in January here in Florida.ReplyDelete
I suppose we will be enjoying your Florida strawberries here in NJ soon! I could use some of your warmer weather right now though! Thanks for visiting.Delete
What a gorgeous block! And your kitty looks cozy and warm :)ReplyDelete

Thanks, Kathy. Thanks for hosting. I have added your Slow Stitching Sunday link to my blogDelete
I LOVE IT!!! What a wonderful square. Your appliqué is awesome. Lots of little turning there for your fingers to tackle. You have created a real beauty. Can’t wait to see what you are doing with your next block.ReplyDelete
Thanks! Next block is not nearly as challenging!Delete
Wow, absolutely gorgeous! I'm so impressed!ReplyDelete
Your post made me yearn for spring and my own strawberry patch full of strawberries! Such a cute block. The fabrics you chose for the strawberries are just perfect. I'm so envious of all the gorgeous applique projects everyone is working on. I just started an easy applique project late last year so maybe this year I can work up to something a little more difficult.ReplyDelete
My advise is to just keep practicing!Delete
I have worked on some challenging blocks last summer, unless you have done one, you have clue. Your block is stunning!ReplyDelete
Love the strawberry block!! And your kitty has the right idea for today :)ReplyDelete
