CQJP November Block - Crazy Basket Case

 This is my November block for the Crazy Quilt Journal Project.  I have 7 blocks to go for a lap quilt.
 Oh, my blurry photos! hands seem to shake a little when I hold the camera... I added a basket charm with french knot flowers, some gathered gingham ribbon flowers, some leaves, some chain stitch...
 ...some feather stitches and lazy daisy stitches, some feather stitches and french knots...
 ...some feather stitches and pistil stitches, some polka dot ribbon and herringbone stitches.
And here are all my blocks so far pinned together. I put muslin in the blank spots. So...I just need to make some blocks to replace the muslin and need to make 5 blocks for another row down the side.  Then I'll piece some red and white crumbs for a little border.  

I've used primarily red and white, added one or two baskets to each block and tried to make each seam different. Oh, and I've made it all washable - its a lap quilt called Crazy Basket Case.  Crazy, huh?

And, it's time to register for CQJP 2013 now. And...I'll be making another lap quilt.  Can't wait to start.

Just so amazed with your beautiful work. What a heirloom this will be. I especially love the fruit basket? block or maybe that is yarn inside. Third block down, left side. So cute.
