These are the seven baskets I've made for the Baskets of Plenty quilt-along, created by Cheri Payne for her Facebook group, Quilts by Cheri ~ Friendship Group.
They're taped to the wall above my computer in the room where I sew. I enjoy looking at them when I walk into the room but seeing this photo of them makes me realize how busy they are. I hope a wide sashing will give each its own space and a chance to shine. (Though,
some of them look "shinier" to me than others. I have a few favorites.)
The order I made them
-- top row, l. to r.: Basket 5, Basket 4, Basket 6
-- bottom, l. to r.: Basket 1, Basket 2, Basket 3, Basket 7
Now I need to decide on the fabrics for the final basket. This basket will be about half-size of the others, measuring 7½" x 10½" Just a tiny one, but with one huge flower and some smaller ones, depending on what I decide.
I've chosen the background fabric but not the other fabrics. Choosing fabric for the basket is next. I'm leaning toward the one on the left because the colors are ones from all the other blocks. But it's not a "primitive" print and maybe it's just a little too busy. I don't want a fabric that stands out and distinguishes itself as too different. The fabric needs to fit in with the other baskets.
I'm thinking about an orange flower. But then again, maybe not.
I love to see other bloggers' photos of their finishes but I also appreciate seeing how others make decisions about choosing fabric, layout, sashing, etc.
Do any of use use feedly for your blog reader? I like it a lot for the non-quilting, family history blogs I read, and it's great for the quilting blogs I follow, too. But today, when I went to the site, all of my feeds were gone. Not a single blog in the list. Ugh! I hope it's just today, just a little glitch, and everything will be back to normal tomorrow. Because if it's not, I don't know how I'll ever find all of your blogs again -- maybe as many as a hundred. If you use feedly, has your blog roll been effected?
My prayers go out to the people of Texas who have been affected by Hurricane Harvey. So much devastation and such an interruption to their lives.
