I am oh so close to some finishes, so expect some nice eye candy soon!
Today I cut up some scraps and started a test block of Charlotte's Baskets (found here on Bonnie Hunter's website). It is tedious but I like the final product. Of course if you look closely you will see I sewed it together incorrectly! RRRRRRipppppit! I have enough fabric cut to make 25 blocks. My blocks will finish at close to 12" because I couldn't bear to cut my HSTs so small. I had quite a few left after making Bonnie's Pineapple Blossom quilt so my work was already half done! As for the basket fabric, I purchased a bit SUPER cheap at Connecting Threads because the print wasn't straight. When you cut pieces this small, it really doesn't matter! I really love the deep red.
