Baskets......

The baskets are finally together.
 
 
This is not going to be my flattest or most square quilt that I have made. 
No matter how I have tried, it's just not doing what it is supposed to do.
I am thinking that with all the homespuns thrown in with the regular cotton fabrics it has kind of thrown this whole quilt out of whack.
 
But.... I have applied the first 1 1/2" borders to help square it up before I get onto the next steps.
 
 
It's probably more square now, but there are still some pooches in there that I am really not happy about.  I guess this will be my problem quilt when I get it to the long arm. 
 
Also, got some time in today on the christening gown.
 
Here it is at 22 rows. 
 
 
It's taking some concentration with all the yarn overs and what nots, so I am working on it a little at a time.  I am hoping because it is a "small" project, that I will be able to get it done without too much delay. 
 
Ok...that's it for me for right now. 
 
Happy quilting.

  3. I often have a problem with an on point setting like yours getting everything to equal out. I just quilt worrying about it as there is always someone who loves the finished product.

  7. I love your basket quilt! The knitting looks amazing already. I'd have to be on my own to concentrate on a pattern that complex.
