oh no…It happened again. I got hooked on a quilt and it’s taking over my life. The pattern is Charolotte’s Baskets and can be found in Bonnie Hunter’s String Fling book.
You might remember last week I told you that I had cut my triangles the wrong size after experiencing a typo in the directions. (Find post about typo in the pattern directions here) Well I quickly went to work and cut new pieces. From there I played and made a test basket block to check to make sure there were no other typos that I didn’t realize.
As you can see, I’m doing it all in batiks.
I had some more time one evening so I sewed lots on it….
Now lots of the parts are sewn together and ready to be assembled.
I was itching to know what a block might look like so I started making a few of the string blocks….I trimmed them up and de-papered them.
I laid them in place….What do you think?
I really like it. I think batiks was the perfect choice. I’m so excited….so excited in fact, that I kept making the string blocks and have a small stack of them. I have a feeling that this quilt might be done in a fast hurry if I can keep up this pace!!
