Spring Basket Quilt Progress – Thoughts, plans and the 1st pink block.
With 120 – 6″ quilt blocks to make I have got to have some sort of a goal or I will never get them all finished. I want to spend my time enjoying the process, not feeling like it is work. I don’t want to be thinking to myself “only _____ many more to go”. I sew best in the morning when my mind is fresh. But then, that is when I like to get my housework done too. I like the feeling of having what I need to get done finished and now I can spend the rest of my day “playing”. How about you?
I have decided to make 10 blocks each of the purple and pink fabric I have chosen for this quilt and go from there. I think I still need one more purple, but if I don’t find another purple I like, I still have enough of the other purples to make a few more blocks of them.
This is the first pink quilt block. It is from a remnant of the batik I was able to snatch up a while ago and I didn’t have a clue what I would use it for. I just love this material. I think it works up nicely with the other fabric. I took the photo with the brown print underneath that I will be using for the sashing so you could get an idea of what it will look like. I’ve got 8 of these done. I still need to cut more of this fabric for the last two blocks. Happy Sewing and Creating!
