Having new patterns and new fabrics I just had to start a new project. But which one to choose. Of course I had to start on my favorite quilt with the baskets. I started to pick some more backgrounds.
And opened the package with new fabrics I had bought. At first I had planned to use these fabrics in the basket quilt, but now I think they are to yellow and green. I want a red look on the baskets, and I searched through my old fabrics and found a lot of red ones.
And started to trace the baskets. I love Sue’s acrylic templates, so easy to trace around with my new pen.
I also bought a new scissor that Sue recommended, and this one is a must when doing needleturn. It is so sharp and I can do some accurate cutting in the seam allowance. I love it.
Using the superior thread doing my needleturn. You can buy the scissor, superiorthread, gluepen, needles and of course the patterns over at Sue’s webshop. All that you need to do needleturn and english paper piecing.
Today I have prepped a lot of blocks while watching tv. I got my wool slippers on because it is starting to get cold outside. Winter is coming fast. We have already had several nights with minus 4 degrees. Luckily no snow yet. Hope it stays away for a long time.
One block finished and 34 more ready to be appliqued. Sue told me she appliqued 10 blocks each day, no way I can sew these blocks so fast. I have to make 128 basket blocks for this quilt so I guess I have something to do this winter, together with all the other projects I am working on.
Saying for today:
Dreams are today’s answers
to tomorrow’s questions.
