To tell the truth, I only just got it quilted this summer and wasn't in a hurry to use it until the holidays. So it has been carefully folded up waiting for my attention.
Gosh, I love this quilt and its scrappy wonderfulness. "Leftovers Again?" from Evelyn Sloppy's "40 Fabulous Quick Cut Quilts".
Scrappy white snow balls. Scrappy red snowballs. Don't you love it when you take something so basic up a notch?
I gave myself a rest from the Halloween 1904 quilt for a few days and worked on a couple of other things.
I allowed a few of my original Hill Country Basket blocks to live, and combined them with the new ones. After I make a few dozen more of these basket blocks, we will see if they still get to stay. It is pretty obvious which ones the originals are. (The dark ones).
A friend of mine once told me that if certain colors or blocks are sticking out in a way you don't like, don't take them out--add more! So maybe I need more dark ones? I am not sure where I am going with this basket quilt. Guess I need to keep making more baskets and see what I end up with.
May I just say that directional prints DRIVE ME CRAZY. Thanks.
