One of the tastiest summer treats for me is strawberries. A little community in Cape Breton always begins summer activities in a delicious way by hosting a strawberry festival.




Fresh strawberries, biscuits, oatcakes and a cup of tea draw many community members to enjoy a very tasty Sunday afternoon together

As a volunteer the proper attire has to be a strawberry print apron.

So many cute strawberry prints can be found. Although after stitching this table mat I thought the design could also pass for a tomato.  :) 

I stitched some of the strawberry prints with the intention of making a table runner using the Dresden pattern. I did not line the runner because the more I looked at it I could visualize a quilt. I see some quality time with my seam ripper in my future. Does anyone else change their mind half way through a project? 

And if strawberries do not work for you maybe an ice cream bar will do the trick. Marian is giving away a cute pattern each day of the hop so visit her at Seams To Be Sew.

Thank You for visiting. Have a sensational summer.

  13. Love the strawberry inspiration! Makes my mouth water for some strawberry shortcake. The seam ripper and I are very good friends. It is a quilter's prerogative to change direction.

  14. Look at all of the strawberry wonderfulness! I am kind of partial to the apron. My projects are all sort of winging it since I don't follow a set pattern.

  38. The strawberry prints go so well with your yummy display. I had to laugh because one of those bowls looks like a serving bowl on Japan, to be divided into three or four little bits per person.
