IMG_9159 (2) (1024x758)Oh my gosh guys! How cute is this strawberry block? I have to admit that the part with the leaves looked a little fussy–but actually was not problem at all. I have to say it again: the instructions in this book are so clear!

I am using Elea’s Strawberry Biscuit fabric–which is the same fabric that she uses in the book. Up until this block, I’ve been doing my own thing–making my own fabric choices. But on this block, I have to admit that I used the exact same fabric that she did. Because–strawberries! I mean, how could you not use this adorable strawberry fabric on the strawberry block? In fact, I’m in danger of running out of this fabric, because I think I’ve used it on every block.

pretty playtime quilts :: quilt-a-long blog hop

Blog-HeaderHave you seen Elea Lutz’s new quilt book, Pretty Playtime Quilts? Oh my–it is filled with the sweetest quilts! Well, today kicks off a whole late spring & summer Quilt-a-Long blog hop hosted by the Fat Quarter Shop.

I’m super excited to join this, and I am thrilled to be the last stop on the blog hop in August. Elea’s aesthetic in both her fabric lines and her quilts is so darling, I can wait to indulge my inner girly-girl as I make this quilt over the summer.

I will be using Elea’s Strawberry Biscuit fabric primarily for my quilt, and may be mix in some of her last line, Flower Sugar, as well.

FQS made a beautiful video to show off the quilts from the book; it’s totally worth a peek:

So, hop on over to the Fat Quarter Shop today for all the info and join in!
