This is my little homage to Thelma's Door County Cherry Basket Quilt. I used some of her leftover black and brown triangles, and some of my beautiful red charm squares from Primitive Gatherings. The patterns for the basket blocks came from Miss Rosie's "Picnic" Schnibbles pattern. The blocks are 6 inch finished.
My offering is a far cry from the masterpiece Thelma's original is, but in two afternoons, I think I managed to at least capture the feeling of her beautiful quilt. I will enjoy this little table topper (about 25 inches square) for years to come.
And you know something? Everytime I finish one of these mini projects, I can see that my machine quilting is improving!
Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day. I was in the company of my dear little Eva, and we celebrated the lovely day by getting a certain someone new shoes. With polkadots and owls on them. If I am able to teach this child anything, it will be to love pretty shoes.
