Baskets and More

Last night I had the time to finish the last of the Branky blocks, before my December blocks-to-make arrive. Karrin had sent three different pieces of "Rhapsody in Blue" by Bonnie Benn Stratton, from back when the "Quilt For A Cure" fabrics were a new idea. I had lots of those fabrics and made lots of quilts for friends dealing with breast cancer. The fabrics were so pretty and had such a nice hand; I wish they were still available, inasmuch as friends are still getting breast cancer . . . .

Anyway, Karrin asked us to make an 8" or 10" basket block. Which I love to do. Of course, as you know, the thing about basket blocks is that it is usually just as easy to make two blocks as it is one. So that's what I did. They are going in the mail to Karrin today.

I was so happy with the positive comments about Jacob's Ladder that last night after Karrin's baskets were finished, I went back to completing the blocks! I have to wait until after Saturday before I can do more on the Hot Summer Hearts (would you believe I have to get some fabric already?), so I'm going to see what I can do with Jacob in the meantime.

Oh, and I got my sporadic newsletter from Pinwheels. The fabrics that Amy had shown are finally available on line, and I'm afraid I might have to indulge . . . .

I hate to be an enabler :o)

I am going to make a bag or several with them. I may also do stuffed cubes.

I have mixed some in with regular cottons - I'm not sure how I like that.

Love your baskets. As you know, I'm a basket lover, too, as well as a blue lover. Wonderful combination!

Wow, wonderful baskets and they are mine. After Christmas I will have to get these put together. Thanks Nancy!
