I haven't been able to work much on the basket blocks lately because of other commitments. I did finish 250 but had no more prepped. So this weekend I just did it.
I need to cut the last 41 background squares, and then I'm ready to get these all stitched up.
This is the Trick or Treat quilt from the When the Cold Wind Blows by Blackbird Designs.
I'm pondering the appliqued setting triangles. I'll see how I feel when it's all up on the design wall, but right now I'm leaning towards just plain background triangles. I think when the baskets are done that I will want to be done with this quilt. Another choice: A friend from California, Yvette, set hers as straight squares (not on point) with no border and it's beautiful. I might follow her example. Still pondering.
I hope I have an even distribution of colors throughout the quilt. I used all colors of my Civil War fabrics except for blue, red and pink.
Regardless of how I decide to set the quilt, I'm real happy that I stuck with it and did the 291 baskets - or will soon have them done. I'll have to go back and see when I started this ... or maybe I don't want to know!
The light is shining brightly on this overcast day in my little corner of the universe.
