Feeling squirrelly

Well actually I have been feeling like I am in a bit of a quilting and blogging slump. My days have been filled with family and friends so not as much sewing has been going on the past few weeks. I have however made a little progress on the Rachel Meyer quilt. This squirrel and strawberry block has been quite challenging. Not because the sewing is difficult but because my first circle was undersized and I had to play with sizing to make another. And those 50 strawberries get so boring! Oh well the end is in sight.

Glad to hear all is OK at your end, just busy with other things. The new block looks amazing and so does your appliqué.

Beautiful Heather! After stitching all those strawberries you may not want to eat them anymore.....?

I like appliqued squirrels :0) You don't see them on quilts a lot but I find them just as entertaining as birds in my backyard. A beautiful block!

All those strawberries! So much work.:) I have had a lot of family visiting too. I enjoy them so much, but it does break up the sewing a bit and make it hard to find the rhythm again.:)

I am in love with the Rachel Meyer blocks! Are you following a pattern or drawing them up from a picture?

This going to be a very cute block and it looks as though you found the perfect red/pink fabric for the strawberries.
