Baskets and More

I have my next basket complete.
Wendy, Legends and Lace is offering these monthly. I'm enjoying using the scraps I won from Cyndi.  After Wendy read I thought these were challenging blocks she said she would do a hand piecing tutorial when she releases the next basket. Some of them would be easier to hand piece because of the set-in seams. The other reason I think they are challenging is the 16ths for the sizes. (7/16, etc) If you've done the Jane Stickle quilt you'll have no problems.
Here are my 5 baskets.



Gay of Sentimental Stitches and Beyond the Cherry Tree  fame and Brenda Papadakis from Dear Jane fame are doing an applique BOM starting next month! It is called the Benjamin Biggs quilt and is green, red and indigo on cream background......right up my alley! You can check it out HERE.

Karen, from Karen's Quilts, Crows & Cardinals is doing a wonderful hand applique tutorial. Go HERE to get the info.


Have a wonderful weekend!!

  13. Your baskets are gorgeous ! Just yesterday I made a list of quilts to finish in 2014 and NO new temptations were to be allowed - have to scrap that list now and add Benjamin Biggs !! I have plenty of white, green and red - plus the indigo of course. Thanks so much for the link, I would never have found it otherwise.
