I've been making the 2" basket blocks with the pattern from Temecula Quilt Co. Blog.  It was their Summer project to make a basket a day in July and August but I only got as far as making 21 of them. To finish them up I've done a simple alternate block with sashing and a border. They are definitely not perfect but at 2" I'm happy with it. They have another little quilt about to start if you're interested.

Also on the go has been my Jane Pizar centre. As you can see the next round is attached and I'm busy appliqueing the motifs on top. Still a few to go.

Last Saturday was the Applique meeting in Castlemaine. The photos of the quilts shown can been seen on Buddy and me and Secret Sewing Sisterhood Blogs. so I haven't put them up this time.

Dorothy, there is so much to see and love in your Jane Pizar project. It's beautiful. Your little baskets quilt is so sweet. You have the patience of Job to make all those 2 inch blocks.
