Food for thought.

Memory is a wonderful treasure chest for those who know how to pack it.

Moving along......

on one of my retreat projects.  
 
 
The two with the freezer paper handles are the ones that I got done at retreat.  I had all the hst made at that time , so the rest of the baskets  have  been done since being home.  First sewing rows of hst together and then in the last two days getting the blocks all sewn together. 
 
Next step is getting the handles on.
 
 
Right now the freezer paper is attached.  I will trace around them with the white pencil and then cut them out with a 1/4" or less around them and then applique them onto the basket.
 
From there, I think the rest of the quilt should be easy to put together other than the large applique coxcombs that will be along one of the sides.

  7. great baskets. Have you thought about doing the handles with the back basting method? It really works well for this shape.
