Basket Blocks- Now a Top!

I recently participated in a Gwennie Inspired Medallion Quilt Along where each round was a different theme to be interpreted by the maker. The medallion theme was BASKET so I used my basket lotto winnings.  More on the themes for the other borders on my blog post today.  Cathy L in IA Sane, Crazy, Crumby Quilting...

Show and tell

Here are a couple more Charity tops one has the Basket Block…I made some extra ones to go with the Duds/Orphans one I received, the other top uses a chevron I made to go with other left overs…keep in mind, sewing is new to me so there are probably zillions of mistakes. Just thought you might like to see what bits and pieces…even unrelated ones can do even for beginners! ( I am allergic to house work so if you see any dust...

Now I am ready to Decorate …

The older I get, the longer it takes for me to get in the mood for holiday decorating.  The wreath has been hanging on the door for about a week and I bought some frames at a thrift store with an idea how to use them, but aside from that, no decorating has been happening chez moi. Last night, I stitched down the binding on my little idea for our rectangular blocks.   Putting it on my small dining table this morning nudged me in the holiday...

Blocks Received

I received some gorgeous basket blocks in the mail Friday and Saturday from Laura R, Nann, Peggy, Sophie and Jude.  Thanks, everyone.
