The strawberry tops
I have nearly finished the strawberry block (block 10). The strawberries just need tops on them. I used one fabric for all of the stems, and I am using one fabric for all of the strawberry tops. I think this will add some unity. I really like the variation in the fabric I chose for the strawberries and leaves. I love the freezer paper (underneath) method of applique. I am not in the mood to finish all the pointy strawberry tops, I guess that is why I left them until last. I want to make another smooth block next - maybe the grapes block, or fruit block. Leaves have a lot of tips don't they? I will see what my fabric stash tells me to do first. This is so much fun with other people to inspire and spur us on!!
