How many hours does one spend making a quilt. Does anyone every count? I know I've spent more than usual this week but I've had a good reason. When there's a whole round to be completed to see how it looks, it's hard to stop before one's done. So I finished the inner one and although there is a small centre circle sitting there I have to admit I've cut 5 different fabrics ,so far, for it. I'm not going to make a final decision which one I use until the rest of the centre piece of the quilt is finished. Monday the brown triangles got made, Tuesday I stitched the round to the diamond round and I'll admit with a bit of fudging. I made it in two halves with a decent seam allowance to allow for this.
Tuesday evening I picked out the raspberry fabrics and cut them out. Today I 'Roxanne' d them in place, so tonight I can sit and applique each one. Is my stash too big when I can find 32 raspberry fabrics to use? LOL!
Temecula Quilt Co 's blog has the pattern [30th June] for these little baskets to be made and the challenge, I thought, was to make one every day for the months of July and August, but no, the real challenge is the basket block is only 2 inches in size. I made one and then made some more. It is easier to do a week's worth in one go and on the machine, so I'm up to date until next Sunday.
