It's Back

My basket quilt finally came back to me.  Actually, I kind of thought Quiltmaker would have it until after they are done with the block of the month which will be February or March of next year.  I realized after mailing it to Quiltmaker that I had never taken a picture of the finished quilt.  Guess I was in to much of a hurry to send it off.  Today my co-worker and I took a couple of pictures here at the office so they aren't great but they do show the colors of the quilt well.  Can you see where the red bled in the top middle block.  I have looked very carefully at every picture and video I've seen of it on the "Quilty Pleasures" blog and have yet been able to tell that the block bled red in not one but two places.  Quiltmaker must have done some careful editing or used photoshop like they said they could and would.  Whew!

"My Mother's Baskets" aka "Quilty Baskets"

This quilt was designed for my mom.  She has collected glass and pottery baskets for many years so I thought of her basket collection when I was trying to come up with a quilt pattern to make for her. She has also always said her favorite color is green.  Therefore, all of the very green fabrics in the quilt.  I didn't find out until I made the sample quilt for Quiltmaker "Hip Hopscotch" that her favorite color is actually teal.  Apparently, teal green the same teal green that my granddaughter Grace said she likes.  I'll need to get some of that for my stash.  Mom seems to be quite happy with her very GREEN basket quilt though.  Or, at least she will be, when I finally give it to her. 

If you are making the block of the month along with Quiltmaker I sure would like to hear from you. 

Happy stitching,
