Baskets or Scandinavian Christmas quilt??

001

I had big plans in having focus on my Scandinavian Christmas quilt so that I could finish it for this Christmas. Only three months to Christmas and I still have a lot left to do on this quilt. 

But when I met Sue Daley last thursday she told me that her baskets was so addictive.

And yes they are.  Since last friday I have appliqued 12 baskets and have some more ready to be appliqued.  So easy when I took the time to prepp a lot of basket blocks.  When I am sitting down watching tv I just grab a block and start stitching.  Hmmmm……done so many blocks it looks like I am just watching tv all day LOL, but in fact I have a full time job, so I am just sewing in the evening and in the weekends. 

I love doing needleturn, so I keep on applique these blocks, but I promise you I will have a little focus on my Scandinavian Christmas quilt next weekend.

Saying for today:

Love them both ... the baskets look fantastic ... I have a little basket project happening in progress too! Will show you soon when it's finished! I bought the template from Sue Daley at a class I did with her and loved it!!

They both look so good. It's a hard choice when you're desperate to work on two projects at once.

Both are nice, but I really love the stitchery one, it is super cute. I always have multiple projects on the go, and I just choose what to work on by my mood at the moment. Your blog is always inspiring, no matter what project you show. debbie

Both projects are wonderful but Scandinavian Christmas has stolen my heart.

Så fine prosjektene dine er. Det ser gøy ut med kurvene, vet hvor mye jobb det er på SC, jeg har noen churn dash blokker igjen på mitt blå SC.

Du er jo så effektiv! Begge arbeidene blir kjempefine. Jeg tenker du greier å bli ferdig med begge to. Lykke til i alle fall.
