Block #10, Strawberries (Civil War Bride Quilt)

Here is my latest block for the Civil War Bride Quilt.  This is block number 10, the strawberry block.  I decided to embroider the strawberry tops, I got the idea from Janice Vaine's latest book, "The Art of Elegant Hand Embroidery, Embellishment, and Applique", page 62.  There were some strawberries in her book with these cute embroidered tops.  I also decided to make some strawberry flowers.  I searched for a pattern to make three-dimensional flowers and also found them in Janice's book on page 128.  I've finished 9 blocks so far; here's a picture of them all together.
