Applique and Baskets

I've got a mixed bag of blocks finished and they were going into one project, but I didn't think it through very well, so now I'll have extras.

 These are the 5 I finished machine appliqueing on the retreat. 
These 5 blocks are from the Noah and Matilda quilt. Aren't they adorable?! Dawn has done a terrific job of reproducing them. Find them HERE.
For some reason I could't get this one to stay turned when adding to my blog, so you'll have to cock your head. If I would have put a couple of the blocks on the diagonal they would fit in easily. 

These two didn't make the cut and will have to go in another quilt. I love them both! So, I am making one more basket block and 4 more applique blocks for a total of 25.  Wendy at Legend and Lace generously shared the basket patterns and the setting. Thanks Wendy. You can find them HERE.


And while I'm sharing basket quilts. Here are two more from the sale booth.  Stand on your head to see these properly!


Love to you all!

  4. I love the mix of the basket blocks with the applique blocks. It's going to make a very pretty quilt! I'm sure you'll find a use for the extra blocks. I always enjoy seeing more antique quilts - the scrappy unpredictable blocks make me smile :0)

  9. I am too bottom heavy to stand on my head!
    My favorite block is the applique one in the lower right corner of the on point setting. Just something about the colors make me smile. I like what you have come up with by combining blocks from different sources. Will make it uniquely yours.

  10. Like Karen, I love the way you are combining the blocks from different sources to make a totally unique quilt. And, like Claire, I was immediately drawn to the choices of background fabrics you made. Very nice!
    What this all means is that I love what you have done here, and I don't have an original thought in my head. : )

  12. Hi Lori. I don t mind the few blocks being not on point, it adds to the folky charm. Especially if you put them off to the sides. Or could you maybe piece/ extend the shirting backings and recut the blocks on point? They seem too wonderful not to include. I can t wait to see what you choose for the setting triangles and I suppose sashing. Double pink? Red? or the maybe brown in the antique quilt is interesting and unusual.

  13. A combo of Noah and Matilda blocks with Wendy's baskets sounds like a match meant to be. It'll make a wonderful quilt.
    Question -- in the burgundy squares of the pink/yellow/burgundy antique basket quilt, do you know what the white is on thsee burgundy squares? Maybe white batting showing through stitches that have spread or ripped the squares? I'm curious.

  14. I love what you've done, Lori! Fabulous! And those basket quilts are amazing. I sure don't remember seeing them. Maybe they had gotten snatched by the time I went by...

  15. I had to make an extra rose block to make my setting work, and ended up with 25 blocks. They look great Lori!

  18. GOOORRRGEOUS basket quilts. Had some problem with the standing on my head part (not enough wine I think do be that flexible LOL). It's funny how computers can sometimes annoy us. Anywho, very lovely applique blocks. Love them all. Now what do you plan for the sashing: pieced, colour, stripes?

  24. I hate when blogger turns photos but I do find if before I load them I rotate them, save, rotate back, save then load they for some reason load correctly! Go figure. Love your blocks with flowers and baskets, the fabrics...all! Devine!
