Strawberry Fields Forever - a Fruit Salad Block

I thought the strawberry would be my hardest block - not because it's difficult to design, but there's so many versions out there, it would be hard to make mine unique and not step on any other designers' toes. Turns out, the banana I had scheduled for this month was much harder, so here's my version of a strawberry instead!

I knew I wanted leaves that went down, but I struggled with the leaves up for a while, and almost considered leaving them off. I'm glad I didn't - they ended up perfect! It adds a few more cut sizes, but we can handle that, right?

I am using the same neutral (Kona White) in all my blocks, and I use the Quilt in a Day triangle ruler to trim my half square triangles.

If you’re joining me in these blocks, please use #fruitsaladquilt on Instagram or comment here so I can find your blog! I will be posting one block a month, free on Craftsy until Jan 31, 2019. In December 2018, there will be a layout pattern for the entire Fruit Salad quilt, as well as more specific yardage.
