This picture is not very good in that you cannot tell the true colors. There is a band across the top of the basket where I placed some green fabric to represent the leaves of the tulips. The picture makes it look almost black.
It truly looks much better in person. This is the first block I made using the drafting and rotary cutting instructions found on Bee In My Bonnet’s blog. Of course I made a few mistakes, but even with the mistakes it was so much easier than using the templates.
To anyone paying attention to my blog, you will notice that I skipped right over Block #7. Why? There are 40 tiny pieces in that block, that’s why. I think I will wait and do that one when I am feeling more confident.
Has anyone seen my good seam ripper? I lost it somewhere in my quilt studio. I really want to find it. Several weeks ago I also lost my very favorite thimble. I keep hoping it will show up under a chair or cushion. As soon as I go out and buy these essential items, they will reappear I’m sure. In the meantime, I am using an old dull seam ripper and a thimble that keeps falling off. Sigh.
