'Tis the Season from From the Strawberry Patch...

With the month of May come big changes, seasonal ones! Yep, the strawberries are ripe at our local U-pick farm, each and every berry is absolutely as delicious as it looks. The porch quilt has been updated to reflect this full-fledged launch into spring and sunny days ahead. Much more time has been spent lately out-of-doors than inside. It feels so good to get out and to get dirt under my

Berry Good from From the Strawberry Patch...

I've finally taken the time (what else do we have these days?) to make the cording and finish up this pillow cover from a wool applique project completed years ago! It's now in its rightful place, sitting on the deacon's bench in our foyer, the place where I had always seen it neatly resting, in my mind's eye. That clairvoyant mind's eye of mine sees a LOT of things around here finished.

Progress and Pet Peeves from From the Strawberry Patch...

I've been keeping up with the Temecula Quilt Co.'s  Scavenger Hunt  Sew-along through their blog. So far I've been able to keep up week to week, this week's installment, however, is a bit delayed due to an immense amount of piecing required and the fact that we have two additional people under our roof right now (ages 7 and 9); I have no spare time. But, I'm happy to report that I can easily

A Finish and Another Sew-Along from From the Strawberry Patch...

This finish has been a long time in the making. This small quilt is the result of the Temecula Quilt Co. 2015 Summer Sampler Sew-Along. I was diligent (in the beginning) about keeping up with the blocks as posted on their blog.  I decided to do mine using the black and white scraps (generously sized leftovers!) that I fell heir to after my mother finished her own black and white quilt.  She

...Or So I Thought! from From the Strawberry Patch...

With a few of my quiltiest friends I had the opportunity to go on a retreat  the weekend before last; I was eagerly looking forward to this time away. I had accepted a challenge almost a year ago from Quiltkeemosabe and I anticipated this chance to meet that challenge and  achieve my goal of having a new table topper on our kitchen table by Christmas this year! I had admired this pattern and
