Another little basket block is finished. I like it, even as crooked and out of proportion as it is. And are those primitive flowers or just odd ones, do you think?
What I keep learning again and again is that a photograph is more
perceptive than my eyes when looking at the real thing are. Now I see
everything I didn't see when I was laying out pieces and stitching them
to create this block, and even after the block was stitched. Maybe
photographs are just more objective?
Thank goodness I left a little extra around the edge for trimming. I have about half an inch in which to tip the basket and flower a little to the left. This block will measure 7½" x 10½" when cut.
Asymmetrical baskets are a little challenging for me because I'm never certain how to place them on the block. Sometimes they're fine, other times, like this one, they seem to tip too far in one direction or the other.
This is the final basket block in Cheri Payne's Baskets of Plenty quilt along in her Facebook group. There is one more block in the quilt-along, however it has a branch and bird plus the quilt's name.
Cheri used a simple 2" scrappy sashing between the baskets in mostly light and medium fabrics. So there's one more aspect of play before finishing these baskets into a quilt top. I want a quilt large enough to use so I may add an extra border or two, or I may make a few more basket blocks.
