Making Progress

I hope you all are enjoying the blog book tour for Scrap-Basket Sensations!! Go see Kim and say hi - she's so excited to have you all know about her wonderful book. It's been a busy weekend for me (social obligations), so not a lot of quality time sewing, but..... I do have the top together - WooHoo!!! My Tipsy Baskets are not so tipsy, so I've named this Winding Baskets, as each row of baskets follows from one direction the next. The colors in the Martinique collection are so subtle and beautiful. I'm hoping to be able to have this quilted by the time it's my turn, but remember, I do have a full time job outside my home!!I'm also working on the burning question...... what do you do with all those little triangles??? LOL!! Here I am trimming them up.

I press open the seam and trim them to 1 3/4". Stay tuned, there's more to come on this too.
Don't forget the blog book tour.

Oh it is so pretty!! I too had a marathon weekend of sewing and finished Paddle Wheel. (except binding)
Save those little 1/2sqs for mini quilts or little extra borders around larger blocks...possibilities are endless! I have bags full and have made many small quilts.

Millie said...

Your baskets are beautiful. Can't wait to see how you are going to use those leftovers. It is great to make a second quit from leftovers.

Karen said...

I throw all the little triangles away. I admire that you are trying to make use of them.

Martinique! Another one I wish I had gotten! Very pretty basket quilt!

I save all those triangles too! I pile them up in a container and when the mood hits, I will make long chains of little squares. I put some together into a wall hanging last year. I think the next batch will end up in a border.
