I have a love for the look and smell of strawberries, so much so that I have been wearing strawberry oils or sprays since I was 14 years old. In high school, my husband used to call me his strawberry and he was my peach. We don’t really do that anymore, but he loved how I smelled so much, that he had me put my strawberry oil on a jacket he used to wear so he could smell it when I wasn’t around him (we are a little crazy about each other, it is true).
If I had a baby girl, this is what I’d make for her, hands down. Because I don’t have a daughter and am not pregnant, I thought to make it anyway (but for someone else to enjoy)!
I will say that this was actually more challenging than I thought it would be (the leaves mainly)! It took some time but I got it done quickly enough after becoming addicted to making the blocks. I ended up making about 12 blocks in the last block sewing day (on Thanksgiving) which alone took me 3 hours. The day before I made 10 blocks which took me 4 hours because I was still trying to get the groove in for understanding the pattern. When I made my first 3 blocks and I tried to figure them out, it took me an hour and a half (ah, so long, just for three). Piecing it together took the most time though.
As soon as I posted the first block I completed, someone already claimed that they wanted to buy it! It sold as soon as I finished. Really neat!
