With Petit Four wrapping up (more updates on another post), I'm left with the need to find a new take along project. I find that I travel quite a bit for work and having something tucked in a ziploc bag ready to just grab and throw into my carry on is a blessing.
I find that not having a hand project readily available has me full of anxiety so I decided to look for my next project. Which ever project I chose it would be a long term project and one that I won't keep track of.
My original thought was to make this:
I like the small baskets that look more like padlocks than baskets but what I love most about this one is the medallion in the center and the scalloped borders.
Option two was this one:
This one is bigger and has a unique design where the quilt has a different pattern on the edges and incorporates nine patches between the baskets. The baskets are also more defined. I don't like that the baskets are in two pieces (the handle is a separate piece) but I like that they are larger...
I consulted with the most opinionated ladies in my life and the feedback was unanimous in favor of option #2.
The pattern is called Trick or Treat and is in the book When the Cold Wind Blows by Blackbird Designs. BTW: This book is AWESOME! I love love love the projects in it.
I recently went to a not so local quilt shop to take advantage of an awesome sale where I picked up a good start on my palette for the quilt.
I have a few more pieces on order but I think I need a bit more of the dark cheddar.
Does anyone know of someone working on this one?
