Well...I wanted to piece...that is my favorite thing for a day off!! I wanted to start something new, but instead, started something old. I mean, worked on something old...a UF-OLDIE!! The red baskets from last post reminded me that I have another basket quilt in the works...this one. (By the way, thank you so much everyone for helping me decide how to set the red basket blocks...on point! I am still hand appliqueing the handles)
I had an old BOM that I just really didn't like once I had it...so I made basket blocks instead from the fabric.
So, here are the basket blocks on point, but I thought that maybe I could make blocks as above? Again, what is your opinion? Thank you for your help!
The basket block is 4 inches finished, and very easy and fun to do.
Speaking of OLDIES....I made a turtle quilt many years ago, of all greens. Now at that time, I just used whatever greens I could find, and made the quilt. The original quilt that I found inspiration from was in my mother in law's home...she said I could have it, but another family member wanted it. So, I determined to make a pattern from her original quilt and make one for my husband. And so I did! Anyway, long story longer, I found that I had lots more blocks cut out and stashed away...enough for a whole other quilt. Yahoo!! So I am finishing them up, and the curved piecing is really not hard at all, because the pieces are huge! 6 inches at least...12 inch blocks...easy-peasy!!
Have a great day, all!!
