Sally Post Part 2 and More

I met my goal for February on stitching three more Sally Post blocks.

I also stitched another of the "Bright Idea" blocks.


And two blocks for "A Tisket, A Tasket".  I know it has been a long time since the free patterns were offered.  I prepped the first two months blocks but never stitched them.  About time that I did.  I think most people have done all of their blocks and have finished quilts long ago.

I am on a roll right now doing applique.  More to show soon.

  5. If it makes you feel any better, I think I did the first 6 or 7 of the Bunny Hill basket blocks and then ran out of steam. I should pull mine out and see what I have left to do! Beautiful work, Karen!

  6. Just how many applique projects do you juggle at a time? They are all beautiful, but I especially like those whimsical basket blocks. Very cute!

  8. Funny you should mention the Tisket A Tasket blocks because I was just thinking about them last night as worked on Anne's block for the Moda Friends blocks and was really enjoying hand stitching the basket handles on my baskets. I enjoyed doing those blocks but, we moved after I had done a few of them and I never finished them, maybe I should dig them out. Your projects are all looking very nice!

  9. Very pretty blocks, your applique is beautiful! I saved the patterns for 'A Tisket, a Tasket' but never got started. If I didn't already have so many projects to get finished, I would join you. Maybe I will catch up in a few months. I will be watching to see your progress.

  21. Your various applique projects remind me of how I work. I usually have 2-4 BOMs going. I prep 1-3 months worth and then spend an entire week appliqueing all of them. It makes a break frin piecing and quilting. Oh, and it was fun the see the Tisket/Tasket blocks again. I love mine.

  25. They are all looking great! And, no, not everybody has finished the "A Tisket, A Tasket" quilt. I think I have about 8 baskets done, so I'm a little ahead of you, and I hope I can get them finished this year. They are on my list, anyway. Good luck with yours!

  28. you always have such great projects going on. I'm happy to see you're doing A Ticket, A Tasket. I made one and it is one of my favorite quilts. I hate to take it down for 'rotation' in my living room.
