I finally picked up the basket blocks off the living room floor and sewed them together. You might get the idea that we don't use the living room much and you would be correct. The floor became a design wall for the basket blocks. I just didn't have the oomph to pick them up and sew them together. I still have a stack of blocks to applique and had intended to make the quilt bigger. I decided that the quilt top is big enough. It is approximately 80" x 80". The left over stack will be given away and someone else can applique and make a quilt of some sort.
Barb from "Fun With Barb & Mary" blog inspired me to buy some solid orange fabric and a few other solids to use with it. If you haven't seen her orange quilts, pay a visit here and see them on two different posts. It makes you rethink orange. I have a design in mind for the fabrics. And it put me in a mood for another design using orange. I did some online shopping and have ordered some of Sandy Gervais' solids which have a bit of mottle to them. Stay tuned.
I have the two August blocks from Raggedy and Friends ready to embroider and am going to sit down and start on them now.
Have a good day.
