This strawberry pattern is one of 38 paper piecing blocks from the Sugaridoo Sampler. I’m sharing it with you, so we can both work on the same pattern. That will make it easier for you to follow along with the tutorial.

Yay it’s Friday! Do you have any fun plans for the weekend? I’m going to the zoo tomorrow :) I love the zoo! Maybe I even get some new ideas for more Sugaridoodles or animal blocks for the Sugaridoo Sampler.

Since I missed the work in progress Wednesday that I planned for this week I wanted do quickly share the quilt blocks I’ve  been working on this week. I have finished 16 of the 57 blocks. I’m getting somewhere. I hope to finish all the blocks this month, but that might be a bit too ambitious.


These are the Funcky Fishes blocks. How cool would these be in a whole quilt with fishes? Oh why don’t I have more time in a day? :)

In blue we have Freddy and Ferdinand.

And these ladies in pink are Fiona and Francine. I love making these blocks. They are just so fun!

Besides the fishes I worked on the cat and dog blocks. The bunny also belongs in there, but I haven’t got to that one yet.

Dog quilt block // How cool would this be as a mini quilt. Love these Karen Lewis Blueberry park fabrics.

This green fellow above is the Dapper Doggy and below you see the Smitten Kitten block in blue. Both need some eyes, but I’m not sure yet how I want to embroider them.

They are both made with the Blueberry Park fabric line by Karen Lewis combined with Kona Cotton solids. Love love love those fabrics! It’s going to be a sad moment when I finish all of them.

So that’s my quilting progress for the last two weeks. What have you been up to?
