After working on light, scrappy blocks for a week or so I needed a spot of color in my quilting life. So I started making this:
This is not an original idea. I saw Marie's basket blocks at QuiltBee and she found the pattern in an Edyta Sitar book. I don't usually like basket blocks but I couldn't resist this one. I thought, Hey, I can make those. They will be small, easy, quick. Not! Small does not equal fast. There are 60 little squares sewn into 15 little 4-patches, for a basket that's 10" along one diagonal side. I don't have a pattern, just going by what I see. I don't think it will be too hard to figure out the rest (says the one who thought it would be a quick block).
It may not be fast but it is cute, and bright, and colorful. I may stop at one or make more. It was a pleasant, colorful, little diversion. Just the spot of color I needed.
