I finished my second set of these quilt blocks and I am pretty happy with my results. In my last post I wrote about picking all of my fabrics ahead of time for each block right through to the latest release - block set 7. Of course, after all of that time and effort I had an issue right away with the first block I worked on. :(
not enough of this fabric...too bad :(
It all worked out in the end but I couldn't use one of the fabrics I had chosen because I just didn't have enough. I really wanted to use the subtle paisley fabric in the corners of the 12" block but it didn't work out. I am using mostly fabric scraps for the construction of these blocks and unless I really need a large piece of fabric I want to stick to just scraps. I had to rummage through my scrap bin again to find a suitable scrap piece that I could get four 3.5" squares. I did find one that would work well enough even though it is darker than my first choice.
I chose to machine piece all of my blocks but I did take the time to hand applique the basket handle.
