A few blocks.

 Good evening, everyone.  I am working on block number four, of Cheri Payne's basket quilt along.  Everything is just pinned in place, so I have some stitching to do!!
 I was recently gifted some batiks!!  I have very few, so am very thrilled with these.  I am going to make this quilt, below. 
 Here is what the whole quilt looks like. I think it will look amazing, using these fabrics!!  Thank you, Randy!  The pattern is in the McCall's quilting magazine, May/June 2017 edition.
Just a little block, made from the leftover triangles.  It is 5 inch finished...just playing!


Have a super evening!

Your basket block looks really good, and your pinwheel block does too. The batiks will make a really pretty quilt with that pattern. I received my McCall's Quilting a few days ago. I always turn up the bottom of the page for quilts I want to keep in mind, and that one is one of the ones I turned up. In fact, I've turned up several pages in that issue! ---"Love"

That purple block is great! Isn't it fun to do something with the leftover pieces?

You really get a lot done for having a job that keeps you very busy. You need a Featherweight machine tucked away in a small room in the hospital. You can run in there on breaks and sew up a storm.

That is such a happy, summery basket of flowers.
I love purple and I love batiks, so that block really grabbed me. It is a great looking design--the batiks will shine!

The batik block pattern is very attractive. You're going to have fun playing with the pattern and the fabrics.

That block looked very complicated until you showed the mini. Now I can see how the big one goes together. It will make a beautiful quilt.

I love the colors on your basket block, Julie. You have a great eye for color -- an intuitive sense that works so well!
