Blocks for the Strawberry Patch

If you're looking for the SMS giveaway day post, just scroll down one entry or simply click here.

First, a super huge hello and welcome to all of the new friends I've met through the SMS giveaway day.  Although we all have a great chance to win a goodie or two, I really love giveaway day for meeting so many new-to-me quilters.  I can not wait to get to know you all a bit better!  If you want a quick summary of me, the best place to look is over in the About Us section of the shop website.  Or stick around and read a post or two :)

Over on Instagram (you can follow me as @fluffysheepquilting), I saw that my friend Emily of the Strawberry Patch  has been a little sad lately because her bee-mates were not returning her bee blocks, even though she's already made for them.  I hate to see a friend left out of the fun like that, so I volunteered to make a few for her.

Emily was looking for a bright, modern Churn Dash, so I had a dig around the trust stash and made these:


I love love love the green dots used here.  They're from Millie's Closet by Riley Blake. I just can't get enough!


The dotty print here is also a favorite, from Amy Butler.  I wish I bought more of this years and years ago.

Emily, they are winging their way to you as I type. I hope you like them!

Strawberry Patch said...

Lovely friend, I am so lucky! Thank you :-) and Mary is right, that Amy bulter one may just get missed out of the quilt and kept to put into my own quilt.....after all I am making it for my brother and I'm being kind by not putting pink in ;-) hehe!
