    Smile Strawberry Shortcake for Abby

    My DDIL wanted a Spring/summer weight quilt for my granddaughter and Strawberry Shortcake was on the list. My DH saw the fabric at the LQS and insisted we go back and buy whatever we needed.
    After buying all the fabrics it was time to decide what to do with it. Here is the quilt top and I am so tickled with the results. DH wanted the life-size Strawberry Shortcake for the back which is not big enough so I have to add fabric to make it larger than the top. That is for tomorrow to think about. For now I just couldn't wait to show my new favorite for my oldest granddaughter who is 3.
    I have enough border fabric to make valences for her room and I plan on making some pillow cases as well. Also have to think about quilting design. Thanks for looking

    What a great quilt! I did a SSC for my own grandaughter - I did it in the 10 minute block style and added some appliques. Yours is very, very nice!
    Deb Watkins - I woke up today on the right side of dirt. It is a good day.

    I still haven't been able to get to my boxed quilt books since the move so I went online to Quilter's Cache and found the pattern for the Ohio Star Variation block in 9" so that I could use the fussy cut center blocks and chose the Morning Star block and modified it for the sashing.
