|Basket, Broken Dishes, Churn Dash|
I am so excited about this quilt, and the blocks that I have made so far, that I could hardly wait for Randy of the Barrister's Block to post the latest instructions. I kept checking her site on Wednesday in anticipation and finally I was rewarded! I had no trouble making these blocks, as a matter of fact, I think it probably took me longer just to choose my fabrics. Bonnie Hunter has posted an alternate paper-pieced basket that has a handle that she used instead of this one. I did print it out but I kinda like the one I made so I am keeping it! I hope to make this quilt using only fabric from my stash and so far so good but who knows if I will stick to it. I do have a fairly good selection of blue and brown fabrics so it shouldn't be too much of a problem although I am sure that if I went shopping I would definitely be tempted! Another thing that I am really happy about is that I am sewing this quilt on my vintage Singer 301. I am happy that I bought this machine and it didn't cost too much at all.
