Sweet Grace and Block 2 of BOM

I have had the blocks for "Sweet Grace" ready to go for a while now and finally did some stitching on them.
I am using a Jan Patek design.  The baskets were to be pieced and then stitched onto the background.  I chose to piece the basket section completely.  Just a little drawing in Electric Quilt to get the measurements.  Next up is a pineapple block of which there are three of.

I was a day late in finishing the second block for the "Piece and Plenty" block of the month I am doing.
I like the background used for this block.  A Blackbird Designs sampler style fabric.  And most of the green in the block is from the same fabric design.  Just a different color.

I was working on a Cheri spring quilt design and am going to stitch the wool applique pieces down this afternoon.  I should have something new to show you soon.

Those basket blocks are beautiful. I am leary about doing small appliques, I make such a mess, lol. I got my mats down, in the dryer now. Next I want to do the bunny piece.

Baskets with flowers bring the sweet anticipation of spring. Lovely blocks. That particular Blackbird fabric makes a striking background.

All the baskets are so cute--especially like the one with the little handles! I love the sampler background fabric--I have been hoarding them in various colorways myself and have a big basket full--time to start using it!
Thanks for the inspiration!
