Last Baskets I Promise~

Ok, I'm done thinking and am now assembling sections. I think if you scroll down the page to some of my first ideas you'll find this setting is a vast improvement!

I've used my handy-dandy seam ripper numerous times, for the sashing neutral I'm using the back side of the fabric and I keep forgetting, and I told myself I wasn't going to worry about which way the vines were going, but then I couldn't stand it so resewed the ones that weren't heading NE or NW. I do love the little circle effect in the nine-patch basket feet.

If my calculations are correct I still need 67 more basket blocks... so it will be awhile until you see this quilt again.

Sharyn I think you chose the perfect fabric for the sashing! The "squiggles" lead the eye wonderfully and echo the lines of the basket handles. I also like the fact that the baskets now have bases. Good work!

WOW! WOW! WOW! I love this setting! The movement in the sashing! I can't believe how good the circles on the cornerstones look!

Don't you dare stop posting about your progress on this quilt. I just love it. I hope it is intended for you.

Isn't it funny how talking about a project out loud (or is it online?) can help you make decisions?

I'm pretty tickled with it myself. I just built another section after work today. I love fabric, I love my sewing machine, I love quilting,and blogs are a lot of fun too! ~~~~ Sharyn

That is a gorgeous quilt! I too like the sashing. That fabric is wonderfully placed, along with all the rest of the material in your quilt.
