A Tisket, a tasket...! Sorry...hope that doesn't get stuck in your head. I'm not even sure of the rest of the words!
Anyway, for this week's new thing I decided to tackle something that has been in the back of my mind for ages! A basket quilt - a modern one like a few I've seen popping up here and there in the blogging world. I checked this book out of the library again (I think this is my third time - perhaps I should just buy a copy)!
Without a little quilting experience, I think these basket blocks would be really challenging. I decided to make up a test block...
I was pretty sure that handle was going to give me trouble...and it did! After a few trials I managed to get it done and I think the block turned out pretty good. I loved making this little block, even though it took
ages a while! I love free-piecing without worrying about precise cutting or matching seams! I'm planning on a small baby quilt with these blocks. This project is moving to the top of my list (okay, as soon as I finish that !#$%& star quilt)!
