And then I decided I didn't like what I saw on my design wall. So I played and rearranged and came up with this:
If you look closely, you'll see that all these basket blocks (except two) have a print background with a solid basket. I'm thinking of putting solid block in between - checker board effect. This will leave me with a bunch of solid background/print basket blocks to put elsewhere on the quilt. Hmmm. Still not sure about this. I'll just keep making daily baskets and it will come to me.
I also spent some time arranging flowers in a vase. See them here.
I have a PILE of hand sewing to do tonight in front of the TV. I realized today that I have TWO secret projects in progress, plus the basket project, the Gee's Bend quilt, and the Kantha vest. Wondering if I should concentrate on one at time? Nah....I seem to have a short attention span these days. I enjoy having lots of irons in the fire!
Hubby and I enjoyed a LONG walk this afternoon. The doggies got a bath - ahh, they smell good. I have their bedding in the washing machine. They should sleep well tonight!
I am a wife, mother to two daughters, an avid art quilter, cooking contest entrant, and dog lover. My book, FABRIC PHOTO PLAY, AQS, 2005, demonstrates my original technique for making portrait quilts. My second book (with Peggy Rhodes), Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts was recently released.
