My second block

Last week I finished this. It was fun to do, but I decided to embroider the strawberry crowns with wool. Perhaps not very authentic, but it came out in the end the way I wanted it to look.
I am not quite sure yet which block I am going to do next.


  1. Lovely strawberries. I really like the few unripe ones among the others as well. Really cute. Greetings to lovely Cymru! Wish I could travel the little roads west of Pontypool once again... Beautiful landscape...
    Greetings from the Rhine,

  6. What a beautiful block Jane. I think it's a fine idea to embroider your strawberry crowns. They look great. It's so much fun to see what you're working on and to know that you're out there, an ocean away, working on this quilt too.

    I'm also looking forward to seeing your 5th block Paula. I'm feeling a surge of excitement seeing all of the gorgeous blocks you ladies are working on. I better get back in there and sew. I'm working on the peacocks in the tree now (block #7). This one is going a little faster.

  7. This is gorgeous. I love your colors!

  8. Is very nice i love you quilt... I cange my blog in oter name....


  9. Jane,

    Any block with embroidery is a winner in my book. I just love what you did with the strawberries. We will know who started the trend for embroidered strawberry me, wish I had thought of it first, those tops were a bit hard to work with. Love your fabric choices, the berries just pop right off of the background. Can't wait to see your future blocks.


  10. Those strawberries look good enough to eat. I love how you used embroidery for the stems.
