Oak Leaf Basket Beginning

I was lucky this week in winning some Fall Medley Accuquilt Go die cuts from Barb of Bejeweled Quilts http://www.bejeweledquilts.blogspot.com , and they arrived this morning.  Thank you, Barb, for the giveaway and for the fast turnaround.  I had plans to make a table runner and these are perfect for what I'm making.  This basket design comes from Lynnette Jensen's book, A Thimbleberries Housewarming

This is my version, without the fence.  I plan on using some of the cuts along the border or corners, but I haven't reached that point yet.

The leaves aren't appliqued yet, because there is more sewing to do with the runner, but it's all coming together beautifully, even if you can't see how well everything blends from the pictures.  I can see this basket block being adapted to a Christmas theme, so that may be what I work on for the next Christmas qal.  Hopefully this is be done tomorrow.

I am still hand sewing my Scatty Stars quilt, but it does take time.  That's on my list to complete this week.  Good luck, Joanna!:)

God Bless!

This is going to be just lovely. The die-cuts that you won work perfectly with your other fabrics.
