My mother gave me a yard of blueberry fabric. It sat in my stash for a while because I wanted to do something special with it. I love blueberries because they represent Summer and I love the Summers in Petersburg.
This block is called the Beary Basket. I participated in a block exchange where this was the block chosen by one of the participants.
One summer, I took a class from Kim Diehl and learned how to do appliqué using freezer paper, a glue stick and my sewing machine.
The result of these three wonderful events, the quilt retreat block exchange, the Kim Diehl class and the lovely blueberry fabric, is this wall hanging.
