QUILT INFO

I used an Electric Quilt applique design and modified it slightly to make this basket block.

Slow Stitching Sunday

I am linking with Kathy for Slow Stitching Sunday.  I have the center section complete now for "Alma's Winter Garden" which is a pattern in Jan Patek's "Garden Dance" book.  It still needs a pieced border and then an applique border.  The center should measure 36 inches square.
Kathy is having a fabric give-away on today's post.
Back to slow stitching.
