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 hunted for strawberry patterns like mad for a full week and finally found this cute pattern at Jamberries.  I got the fabrics from The Quilt Ranch, JAQS Fabrics, and JoAnn Fabric.

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!
