BASKET TABLE RUNNER PROJECT

I am working on a new table runner project.  I love baskets both real ones and on quilts.  For this runner, I am using a pattern by "Joined At The Hip" called "Berries and Baskets".  I have used wool on a cotton background for the applique part of the runner.  Next I need to do the pieced blocks.
The berries I made by cutting circle shapes of the wool and using pinking shears around the edges for a more ragged look.

I changed the header quilt to a fall look flimsy that I made a good while back.  I used a Fons and Porter pattern for it.  Fused the parts and did buttonhole stitch embroidery with black floss.

Lots of sewing going on here today.  Stop back again soon to see what I am working on.

This little basket runner will be cute. I like your technique on the berries. What is the pieced block that goes with the baskets?

Those basket blocks are so delightful - the pinked edges of the berries at a lot of texture! Love it!
