APPLIQUE QUILT BLOCKS

I have more applique blocks to share with you and a quilt that is close to being done.
I will share a full quilt picture of this later.  I started the quilt last fall but did not get it done before Halloween.  Now it is quilted and waiting for the binding to be finished.
These are blocks from a new project.  Another basket quilt.  These are from a Joined at the Hip book.  I have made two of every block so that I can make two wall hangings.  There are a few more basket blocks applique, some little stars, filler blocks to piece, etc.  I am enjoying the applique on this project as the shapes are fairly simple.
The bee hives belong to the Collector's quilt pattern set I am working from.  This one was easy applique that went fast.

I have the background pieced for another basket block for the designer series.  Just haven't prepared the applique pieces yet.

We have family visiting this week and are enjoying spending time with them.  We have been playing a domino game called Mexican Train.  It is a good game for a group of people as we have five playing.

Have a good day and stop back soon to see more progress on my quilt projects.

Karen, your basket quilts are going to be so lovely. I can't wait to see them all finished up. I'm finally setting up sewing room...whew, will it be nice to not be in the living room or family room and get organized! I'm hoping I can be a little more productive after it is ready for me to settle in, but it will be a few weeks. I know I'll never catch up with you, LOL, but it will be heavenly to have my very own space! Looking forward to seeing pictures of the quilt you are finishing up. Hugs...
