No, it's not a Jane Austin movie. It's a quilt - duh!! That's the name of the pattern I've been working on and it's designed by Karen Montgomery, published by Timeless Treasures. I saw it made up several years ago at a quilt show and that is the first time I ever had the desire to make a basket quilt. I have spent the last several days putting the sashing and corner stars together. It is in 3 sections right now.
I'm seriously thinking about sandwiching it in 2 pieces so I can comfortably quilt it on my sewing machine (since it's a double bed size). Even though when I did this once before I swore I would never do that again! However, that was a long time ago, and I think I've learned a lot since then and it might not be so bad after all. For one thing, I would like to quilt it myself - after doing some big time practicing - and after I figure out how I want to quilt it. Any suggestions would be welcome.
I'm winding up my Christmas preparations. Yesterday I put up a few Christmas decorations, but not a tree. We won't be here for Christmas, however, I'm not a total scrooge and I love the decorations. How are your preparations going?
