Pattern of the Month August 2013: Strawberry Social

It's time again for a new Pattern of the Month! This month we selected the Strawberry Social Quilt Pattern by The Pattern Basket as our August 2013 Pattern of the Month. Our very own Debbie Taylor is here to talk about the pattern and show off her Strawberry Social quilt! And don't forget, the Pattern of the Month is 20% off all month!

Hello quilters, it's Debbie here! I am just crazy about this quilt pattern and think you will be too. I knew the moment I saw Strawberry Social by Pattern Basket that I just had to make the quilt. I love strawberries, so I decided to make a strawberry a day!

I loved picking out each fabric for the strawberries in different shades of red and pink. The technique used for the leaves was fun and I pressed all my seams open, which makes it lay flatter! My cutting table was piled high with all kinds of combinations for these little beauties and each one was a favorite!

Of course, I had to include an unripened strawberry because there is always ONE in every basket (usually hidden at the bottom)!

Want to make your own strawberry quilt? Be sure to pick up a copy of Strawberry Social by The Pattern Basket this month, while it is 20% off, and try making a strawberry a day!

This is so cute! Very creative, love the unripened one; adds a special something. Thanks for sharing.

Oooh it is gorgeous, I definitely need to make this! Will the PDF version of this pattern be on special also?

Sooz - Just the paper version will be on special!

Oh well it was worth asking! Being in Australia shipping is more than the cost of the pattern so I tend to only buy PDFs.
