Little Baskets


Finally got my sewing room/closet in order. I sat down to do some sewing and the project I wanted to work on didn't have any blocks cut so I settled on these little basket blocks I started last November. I have 36 blocks total. They are 6" blocks.
I have about 8 blocks left to sew. And about 12 handles to applique yet. I had trouble with the handles. So mine are different then in the original pattern. They also are not very uniform from block to block. I may redo the worst 2 or 3. And live with the rest. I think I'm going to do an alternate block with the green fabric in the picture. The one with the little squares I think it's called stepping stones. The one that Judy has in her tree quilt. That's what I worked on last weekend.

The handles look fine to me! It is a sweet collection of blocks and I just love stepping stones for an alternate block.

Cheers!

the baskets are perfect with slightly variable handles -- makes them feel charming I think.

Baskets are my all time favorite block! Yours are adorable! I think they are perfect - and the slightly different handles add interest! I wouldn't redo any of them!

Great blocks!

I like the mix of the two basket blocks--going to be a sweet quilt.

I always think a lack of uniformity gives a quilt character. (Actually, I'm lazy and don't like to rip out and redo.)

:-)

Nice baskets!

Your little baskets are so pretty! The pinks, along with the size of the blocks looks so feminine.

I think the handles look great - and I like the combo of pinks and green too. :)
