.....on my caffeine high, I got so much done! Woohoo! But no, I'm not going to make that a habit! It was 42 hours of knots in my stomach, and nerves on end! No more regular coffee.....ever again! lol
Of course, I'm totally happy that some of my 'must make' projects got started! I pulled all my repro brown fabrics and started cutting like crazy! I've had a brown baskets quilt on the list for a long time now, so I'm totally jazzed that it got a good start!
I am loving making these baskets! I used Linda Franz's Inklingo tutorial on back-basting the handles and they are quick and easy to whip out! These blocks finish at 7.5" square. They'll be set on point with alternate beige-background squares......I'll need 49 of the baskets......8 down, 41 more to go! lol
Don't you just love all the tutorials, great ideas and inspiration we get off the internet!?! I was just saying the other day to my friend, Pat......."Where would we be if we weren't following the blogs we do and getting so much good info on the computer!?! Imagine never seeing Bonnie Hunter's blog? Or Sue Garman's? Or Cindy Needham's? And so many others! Cripes! Our whole idea about quilting would be SO different!" And I know I would never have attempted, or accomplished, many of the quilts I've done if not for getting all that amazing information and inspiration from so many blogs!
So at this time of Thanksgiving, I'm totally grateful for all the wonderful quilters who inspire, motivate, and help to keep me creative! And I'm so grateful for all the lovely comments I always get from my followers, too! You are the best! Thank you all so much!
Hoping everyone has a lovely Thanksgiving!
Eat lots of pie! :o)
