APPLIQUE WORKS IN PROGRESS

A quick post to share some of what I have been working on.
This is one of the pieced filler blocks that goes into the applique basket quilt I have started.  An easy block to make.
This basket block is certainly a different style as far as the basket itself.  Not hard to make but takes some time.
And finally, an applique wall hanging that is partially done.  It will have a round of vine, leaves, & flowers that goes in the border areas that do not have the triangles.  I forgot to make the bias vine strip and need to do that before moving on with the project.

I am stitching on two spring wall hangings and should have something to show you soon.  I am always busy with one project or another.  Hope you enjoyed the view.
