Baskets !

We made baskets on Saturday Jill taught the class....unfortunately I missed taking pic's of the Dr. Seuss basket and Joyce's basket. I was surprised at how easy they were to make. If you look on the group pic you can see the Dr. Seuss basket in the background. Carol pre embroidried the chicken basket. The Halloween basket was appliqued by Jill and a sample basket for the class to look at..

This is a old post from October that I forgot to it was a draft.

Disappearing Nine Patch

In this quilt the fabric selection had to be very specific. It had to please both husband and wife, my nephew and his wife. Some husbands don't care what quilt is on their bed but he does which is great.

I had them select the pattern they wanted then they looked at all of my quilts and told me which fabrics they liked.

I then went to my stash and selected the fabrics I thought would work with each of their tastes. It took me a year with having to move three time in less than 12 months and all the other things that happened last year.

This picture was sent to me from their home...I think it looks great on their bed don't you ?
