Chatelaine- Free BOW Sampler Quilt Block 81

This week I have a gorgeous block for you called Blueberry Patch. This is a lovely pieced block and can you see the white sawtooth star, hiding in the background? Its a very easy block to sew together and I kept my palette soft and pretty but that star would really "pop" surrounded by some lovely bright fabrics.
Blueberries are a staple in our house. Not only are they a super food full of wonderful antioxidants but they are so versatile and can be used in lots of recipes.
For centuries, wild blueberries were used as a source of food and medicine. Berries were left to dry out in the sun and were then ground into a fine powder, preserving them for the winter. The powder would be mixed with ground corn meal and honey as a nourishing food during the colder months.
Growing your own blueberries requires a lot of love and planning, due to they rich nutrient requirements and protection from pests, so preparing a special patch in the vegetable garden (companion planting) would yield the most successful results.

And lastly I have your collage of Blocks 73-81. They all look so lovely together and it wont be long until they will all be joined in our quilts:
