I have been steadily working on the basket quilt, which is suppose to be a summer weight quilt for our bed. In reality it is a UFO that is starting to haunt me. However I have made some progress, I have mastered the art of "perfect circles", enabling me to make the extra cherries for the 3rd appliqued block. The pear and apple applique blocks are missing here - off getting their borders added.
I have added the neutral background triangles to the completed basket blocks. It seems I am short one basket block and missing a handle on another...sigh! I am determined to finish this quilt, but keep getting distracted.
The back is made up of leftover flannel I found in my stash. I love flannel backings for babies.
I have had this pirate fabric in my stash since our oldest son was a toddler, he is nearly 8.
So I couldn't go past using it as a backing for this panel. I didn't even need to add a border to this panel, just quilted and bound it. Another quick cot quilt finished, perfect baby gifts. More FMQ fun was had.
Now I just need some babies to arrive...at someone elses house, not mine!
Happy quilting, Sue SA.
