This must be some kind of record for me as this is my third post in five days, and I never gab this much. I mentioned in an earlier post that I made a deal with myself to make better use of my subscriptions to quilting (or crochet) magazines and make something from each issue. To really get my money's worth I should make lots of things, but I'll take it one at a time for now.I received my first issue of Quiltmaker on Friday.
I like basket blocks and decided to try the scrap basket block in this issue. EDIT: Bonnie Hunter is the designer of the block.
I began cutting fabric last night and sewed the block tonight. It took me quite a bit of time to make one block, but hopefully the rest will go faster. I know the block is soft in color. I think it will still work. There is some contrast in the size of the prints. And these aren't baskets, but pots filled with flowers.
I made a mug rug from the little block I made during the Christmas Quilt Along on Saturday. So let's see, if I make a mug rug every month through November I'll have ten done before Christmas. Not bad.
Hope you are having a good week with your crafting.
God Bless You.
