More baskets

Work continues on my little basket quilt. I am finding these baskets to be addictive and a perfect project during this busy time. Lots more to do but by prepping about 8 a day I am making great progress and enjoying the process.

Well this is weird...I just last night picked up those same little baskets I had prepped for applique and was shaking my head at the lousy looking applique I had done on the 1st one...SO-----I decided right there and then to use blanket stitch around them and I am off on a new journey.... I love your greens...Julierose

It's great to these up on your design wall. I really like the random placement of the nine patches, is that how you'll place them?

Love your baskets! How many do you have to make? How big are the blocks?

Mayleen said...

This is going to be a beautiful quilt! When I first saw this pattern, I decided not to make it because I do very beginner applique and have way too many projects already in the works. The more I see of your blocks, the more I like it making it difficult to resist!

How funny! We have identical design walls right now...I am also, slowly, making these baskets. THey are a little ignored right now as I am hot and heavy into another applique project, but I will get back to them. Yours are lovely! How many are you shooting for?

In stitches,
Teresa :o)
