Cue Barry Manilow, Please
So here I am with the last of Piecemeal's blocks, the 25th block for my indigo and caramel basket quilt (turns out I only need 24 for the lay-out, so Basket of Chips is likely to end up on the back). This block was far from simple, but it is finished. The new method for the handles that Piecemeal devised worked like a dream. Where I ran into the most trouble was in stitching that long horizontal seam, the one that affixes the basket bottom to the handle half. My measurements didn't quite match Piecemeal's, and I had to fudge just a tad. But it's together. And I like it. I like it quite a bit.
Come on, Barry. Join Piecemeal and me on the stage.
And sing it.
"Looks Like We've Made It!"
