Please Don't Pick on My Strawberries!
|Did he really have to count them?|
He looked chagrined - and grinned like a Cheshire cat (or like a junior high boy caught in the act). He IS a keeper and like I always say: I'm still married to my first husband after 36+ years. Never found anyone better. But where did I go wrong about teaching him how to treat quilts? It was the lure, I guess, of those plump strawberries. His own strawberry garden didn't yield any this first year, so maybe he was just getting out his frustrations.
I found my pattern for this quilt which appeared in Applique Quilts in 2004. I didn't make the center block (it was an orphan I came upon), but I did design and execute the layout and quilted it. I love the asymmetry of the borders and prairie points, don't you?
You can have this pattern FREE, yes I said FREE. Simply visit my Craftsy store and look for it at the top of the list. The link for my Craftsy pattern store is on the right sidebar. Thanks so much for your continued interest in my patterns and stories about my quilts. They each have a unique tale. This one about my husband poking all 8 of those strawberries is one of the craziest!
