It was October 2017 when Barb V. posted that she and a friend had decided to make basket blocks and invited anyone to join in on the fun. So I did!
I started with some fat quarters and other miscellaneous fabrics that just never fit into any other projects. But for this quilt they were perfect!
I like the strong contrast . . .
. . . and the border fabric that Barb shared with me years ago. Thanks, Barb!
Here's a detail of the quilting.
And a full view on the floor.
I'm still working on better lighting where my design wall is but this is the finished quilt. It's 49-1/2" x 49-1/2".
So now I'm quilting Marbles--a UFO that's on my to-do list this year.
I couldn't resist buying a Wool Moda Scrap Bag on Green Fairy Quilts though I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. All the strips are short lengths and about an inch wide. I actually like looking at them just the way they are :)
One of the big winter attractions in this area is the Ice Castle in Saranac Lake. Normally you'd be able to park your car and walk around but this year people have been told to stay in their cars and drive by--or better yet stay home and come back next year!
