A few weeks ago I posted a picture of some blocks I was making for a swap. The swap was completed, and today the top was completed! I'm so excited -- I don't believe I've ever finished a top from a swap yield this quickly! When the blocks came in, they were just beautiful. I wanted one of every single set!
. . . .
Two of them were baskets, so I decided to see how the blocks would look set on point. I liked. I thought it would work well to have baskets in each corner, so I organized a side swap with Bonnie; we each made a pair of baskets and traded one. Inspiration struck about how to handle the alternate blocks: I was convinced that a miniature sawtooth star to echo the major sawteeth (?!) was the way to go. I think I was right.

I don't generally photograph my quilts until they are quilted and bound, but this won't happen until late in the summer for this one, and I just couldn't wait to show it off!
