PROGRESS REPORT

I am almost finished with this medallion for my "Baskets to You" quilt.  Remember all those little baskets that I appliquéd?  All 120 of them?  All I have to do is stitch the corner pieces, which I plan to do tonight and then I can start putting the baskets together.  I feel pretty good about this!


Here are some of the blocks made for my DS#1/DIL's anniversary quilt.  I will need 30 of these 9-patches which are 12" square.  I have 13 done so far.  This one doesn't have a name yet so I'll call it my pinwheel 9-patch.


I have some other projects going on as well, because I need to have some hand work ready at all times, plus I'm working on my GS's graduation quilt, etc etc.

All in due time everything will be revealed!

You have such pretty blues in both these projects. I can't wait to see all those baskets together. I'm sure the effect will be wonderful.

Gosh Ruth, that medallion is beautiful and will compliment all those baskets you have stitch. Yes, it will be worth it. Nice fabrics/colours in the anniversary blocks.
