Back in the Saddle Again
So sang Gene Autry. I know how he felt because I managed to have some time at the sewing machine this week for the first time since last November.
It meant that I finished my basket blocks. Yeahhh!
The pattern is from Kim Brackett's Scrap Basket Surprises book. Kim has a new book out called Scrap Basket Sensations and there is a Flickr group where you can post pix of your finished projects from either volume. Plenty of incentive to finish this quilt now.
The fabric range is Simple Abundance by Bonnie and Camille and I used a layer cake from Busy Thimbles as well as a little yardage. Busy Thimbles has some fabulous new fabrics in their online store - check out the Civil War reproductions and great new patterns.
Here are my swap blocks from Breezy Bree. I received them last year but hadn't got around to posting them. Sorry for the delay Karen.
Aren't they fabulous! Such a pop of colour. Soon I will be able to start putting my swap quilt together. Theri, Katie and Joanne have pieced their tops and I think are already quilting them. Fantastic!
