Now that Country Charmer is almost finished, I just need to add a label, it's time to get back to the basket quilt. Remember these?
I was doodling and thought I would quilt a basket in the setting squares.
I loaded some practice fabric on the long-arm and tried to re-create my doodles. This was okay.
In one of my practice blocks I quilted this. I loved this one. Mr. Joe liked this one too. This is it! Since everything I quilt is free motion, they won't all look exactly like this one, but I'll try to have them very similar. In the grand scheme of the quilt, it will be just fine.....I think.
I put some assembled blocks around it to get a feel for how it was going to look when it was all together......and that's when the name of the quilt became perfectly clear. For The Love of Baskets. That will be the name of my new pattern!
Just picture quilted hearts in all of the setting squares. I have a lot of work to do to get this quilt finished, so I'm going to leave you now. I have a quilt to put together, borders, backing, and binding to make.....then comes the machine quilting!
