Look What I Found!

Hello Quilty Friends!  Let's start the new week with a new project.  Well, it's not really new, it's a UFO. 

It took some digging to find her. Over the last couple of years there's been a lot of rearranging going on here in the studio.   After about an hour of searching, I sat in my sewing chair wondering if I had  accidentally tossed her in the trash or donated it along with unloved fabric.  And then I saw the white plastic baskets in my little green cabinet.  That's where I hid these little lovelies!  Thank goodness!

It looks like everything I need to finish the blocks is in the basket. Yeehaw!

There's 16 blocks in various stages. Some have the handles and red basket rim stitched down and some don't.  One block is complete.

Three blocks still need basket handles.  This will be a good place to start. 

The bias strips for the handles are right there on the top.  A good press with the iron to get out the creases and wrinkles is all they need.    That's the plan for today.  Get the handles on these baskets and then start stitching the handles and rims into place.

See you soon with my progress!

  1. Those blocks are very pretty, happy stitching!

  2. Your basket blocks are wonderful. I love the sweet vintage vibes of your fabrics and I'm glad you found everything you needed all together and waiting for you to return to this project!
