Bowl of Strawberries Done

As the post title above says, the bowl of strawberries is done! This, along with the tomato block, was one of the hardest, mainly because of the leaves. Those concave seams are a killer! Not impossible though, and incredibly satisfying when done.

Now that the strawberries are done, it's time to get this top put together. This however, will require a sewing machine, and that requires electricity, which might be in short supply with hurricane Irene set to hit our town on Sunday. I better get some more hand work prepared...stay tuned!

Love the bowl, it looks very Japanese. Can't wait to see the whole quilt.

It is so nice, the completed quilt will be very cool. We are also waiting for the storm in PA. Perfect sewing weather as long as the power holds out!

Okay, I have to add my 2 cents. Your choice of fabric for the bowl is PERFECT!! It looks like a real bowl!

Great finish! I love the blue & white bowl -- I used to love to collect blue & white ceramic pieces and this so reminds me of those.

Batten down those hatches and grab your handwork, Irene is almost here too!
