This basket block has been on my bucket list for a while now. It's from Liberated Quiltmaking II by Gwen Marston. She shows you how to make a block and attach the handle, then you just kind of wing it from there. The border fabric from Joann's dictated my color scheme, and the addition of some linen in the background of 3 of the blocks neutralized it a bit.
I only made nine of them, enough to satisfy my need to try it out. This one measures 40x34 inches, perfect for a wall hanging or baby girl quilt.
There's a lot going on here at Pieceful, so I may be absent for a while. Enjoy what's left of this summer and I hope to keep up with my visits to your blogs!
