More baskets have been born to join the first two that I made at Black Rock.
I don't know how many more there will be. Enough so that it isn't immediately apparent that there are two of each. But not so many that it turns into a great, big bed-size quilt.
I love basket blocks. The first two are my favorite from this batch. But more will come.
As I think about these baskets, it occurs to me that I really like the "base" -- what the basket sits on -- for the first two baskets (the ones at the very bottom of the photo) and I believe I'm going to remove the other six bases and make the base consistent throughout the quilt.
I've got an amazing leader-ender at present, too. The Queen Bee for November designs paper-piecing patterns, and when she gave us the papers to piece the blocks for her, she generously gave us extras plus the recipe for completing the blocks. So I'm trying this as a L-E for a while. It is an easy paper-piecing pattern, otherwise, well, you know how I feel about that technique. I'd rather give a cat a bath.
