These are what I was talking about yesterday – another tiny block. The lure of the 3″ baskets was too much for me. I grabbed some ’30s scraps and a white muslin and got started. I love piecing the handles. There’s something so satisfying about making these and they’re very quick to stitch.
And this is how I’m going to set the little baskets. Somehow they seem to just call out for the ’30s prints. Or, for that matter, any cute little print. Or batiks. Or — well, you get the idea. I just can’t resist them.
Little block pressed and the seams graded a bit.
And a nice little stack of pieces all ready to make another 11 little baskets. These little blocks have it all – curved piecing, some continuous stitching possibilities and loads and loads of cute!
“Happy New Year!”
The other night Jake decided he would groom Baxter. And groom him and groom him. It went on for quite a few minutes. Baxter seemed quite content to have his personal groomer.
