Winner! Winner! Chicken Dinner!

I made these awesome basket blocks this weekend. The patterns are/were free at Legends & Lace. You can find them under Baskets Galore. I won't mince words- they are challenging blocks!

And I got most of the fabric to make them from this big box of scraps I won from 
Cyndi at Busy Thimble blog. I had so much fun choosing fabrics from this. Thank you again Cyndi!!
 And I won this book from Jo of Jo's Country Junction. I love that this is pocket size!
 Look at the wonderful information at my fingertips! It is available from Landauer Publishing. I think you may be able to get it as a free download if you sign up to get their newsletter!
Now we are all winners! Have a fantastic week.


  1. Good morning! Happy Thanksgiving Week! Love basket blocks, are going to do a whole quilt of them? Looks like you got some very good pieces in your free box! Have a wonderful week!

  2. SCORE!!!!!! Also love your blocks!! Keep em coming!:o)))

  3. What unique basket blocks! I need easy (mindless) right now, so I doubt I will tackle them. How fun to have a new box of scraps from which to create!
    That little book looks very handy to have--pocket size is a nice feature.

  4. Nice blocks! And nice scraps... it is so fun to get different scraps from someone else... it is a little like Christmas!

  5. Love those baskets! I downloaded them too, 'cuz who can resist baskets! It's good to know beforehand what a challenge they are.:)

  7. Love me some baskets! were the winner! I hoped my name was pulled for that pocket reference book. CONGRATS!!!!!

  8. Gee, I like the basket blocks. I have been saving the patterns but looks like I may have missed one or maybe I saved it and didn't print it out. For challenging basket blocks, you did well. And isn't it fun playing with someone else's scraps. I won a box full from Cheri Saffiote-Payne, and am still playing with them.

  9. Did you really say winner, winner chicken dinner? LOL Looks like some good wins for you. Other people's scraps are so much fun to play in aren't they? I might have to look for that little pocket guide.
    Love your blocks. Right now all I can handle is simple.
    Happy Thanksgiving
