I love strawberries. They are sweet, cute, and happy :). I have a little strawberry collection of some vintage salt/pepper shakers, tea cups, pitcher, knick knacks, and a tablecloth. One of my girls is my Strawberry Girl so if there is a shirt, or pajamas, or undies with a strawberry on them she gets them. I was ecstatic Heather Ross, one of my favorite fabric designers, designed a line Briar Rose with lots of cute strawberries.
|I will definitely be making my Strawberry Girl a quilt and some clothes from this line. The line will be released in July so I have been planning my projects in my mind and decided that I would like to make some paper pieced strawberries on the quilt back. I emailed my friend who is the queen of paper piecing patterns, Kristy, to see if she might be able to make a strawberry pattern for me and next thing I knew she was asking what size would I like and sending me patterns :)|
|The blocks have taken longer to make than I had anticipated as there are quite a few pieces in the leaf and stem sections but that is o.k. because I love these little berries. It is the little things in life that make me happy. In the end the cushion will be 3 squares by 3 squares to be 18x18. I am linking up with freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday today.|
