    second set made

    I'm making each of my grandchildren a full size quilt and gifting it in a matching basket that they can use in their room for Christmas. I have the first set finished for my grandson and this set will be for one of my granddaughters. I'll be sending the quilt out to be quilted. One more set to go and the big things on my Christmas sewing list will be completed. I'm usually playing beat the clock at holiday time. Let's hope that's not the case this year that I keep this momentum going!!

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

      What a great idea, and I love both the quilt top and matching basket! You're so smart to start early. I'm making tote bags for Christmas and I've already started for the same reason. My projects aren't nearly so ambitious as yours, but I'm slow! Hope you will post the others too.

          This set turned out wonderful, Cathy! You're 2/3 of the way done. I love the fabric you used for the quilt.

                  It's an Aunties Two pattern called knotted baskets.

                    Jean, I tend to excel at starting, not so good at getting to the finish line. Seems whenever I need to have a deadline for finishing life gets busy.

                          No, not really hard to do. I found it easier the second time because I had taken the class with the first one. The gal in our shop always makes a sample before they offer the class so sometimes she is able to simplify the instructions and that helped. Basically you make the fabric tubes for the vertical and horizontal piece then insert a slightly smaller strip of Bosnal foam into them. You make a base, attach the strips to the base then start the weaving and finish the top with a binding. The Bosnal foam makes it so it doesn't collapse. It's quite sturdy.

                              I really love the little corner tiles. I am making this in a king and did not really care for the all white sashing. Had not put too much thought into it but this is a good alternative. Love the colors and the basket. Question why doesn't my spell check like the word sashing. Am I spelling it wrong.?
