Baskets and More Baskets!

Posted by Strlady at 5:00 AM
It's been awhile since I gave you an update on this one but my Petit Four quilt (pattern by Fig Tree and Co) is almost ready for it's reveal...
The basket handles, which are appliqued on the block, have been my travel buddies for over a year. I take them every time I get on a plane. Little by little they have moved to the completed bag.


Out of the 36 basket blocks, I have two more handles to attach...


In anticipation of finishing the handles, I started putting together the 9 patches that will be part of the sashing...
Last weekend I finished sewing them all together and I'm now cutting the solid sashes. I'm hoping to call this top done by the end of this weekend!

Wish me luck!!

That quilt is on my To Do list, I can hardly wait to see yours! Sinta just finished her Petit Four last week, did you see it?

I have this pattern too, in my "quilts to make" queue. I look forward to seeing your's when finished.

Oh, that's on my 'to do' list, too. I can't wait to see more of yours. I can tell it's going to be beautiful.

Gorgeous basket blocks!!! I love your retreat photos too. My mom and I go to a quilt retreat every fall in Washington. It's become such a treasured tradition for us, we look forward to it all year! x
