30s Baskets

My first set of baskets is finished for a basket swap. Baskets are to be full of scrappy flowers and backgrounds are to be solid white.  A set consists of 8 - 8.5 inch blocks so I made 8 to swap and one to keep.  I'm going to try to make another set next weekend.  The 30s repros remind me of grandma and her quilts.

I don't really have a design wall - just propped my cutting mat against a wall and covered with scrap batting - so I guess that means I can link up to Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times.   Do check out whatever others have on their design walls - makeshift or otherwise. There's some inspiring work going on out in blog land.

Lovely blocks, the green fabric for the basket is a great choice.

Cute baskets! I don't have a design wall, either, but I still link up to Judy. I have a design floor, a design ping-pong-table, and sometimes a design husband (when the quilt is so big that I need him to hold it up)!
