I'm going into the new year with many, many UFOs. Three of them involve basket blocks. I think these are really Cake Stand blocks with the 2 end HSTs flipped the other way. But anyway, they look like baskets to me. I made several blocks last year in red, blues and purples and decided to fill them all with something. Somewhere along the line I also decided I needed to add some yellows to the mix so made a few more blocks yesterday and cut the fabrics for several more blocks now that I know I like the yellow in the mix.
Some of the old blocks. (You may see that between the old blocks and the new blocks I made yesterday that I changed the way I make the bottom of the basket. )
Earlier this year I participated in a 30s reproduction scrappy basket swap. But, there's not enough blocks yet to make a BIG quilt like I want...
...so I made more baskets using the extra HSTs I made while piecing blocks for my 30s tulip blocks.
...I don't have any idea how I will set them but I still don't think I have enough blocks.
And that's my "Design Wall" today.
