"Across the Wide Missouri"

I started on a new applique project to work in among my others in progress.  This one is "Across the Wide Missouri".  The patterns are by Edie McGinnis and Jan Patek.  I completed the first two blocks.  I have one more block prepped.  Then I will need to cut out more parts for the rest.


The basket block goes in the lower left corner of the quilt.  The blank space will have a pumpkin that overlaps onto it from the border.

I changed the header picture to the flower baskets for a very May spring flower look.  That is the quilt top I did for Mary of Quilt Hollow.  I made some of the blocks for myself but still have more to do.  That is another project I need to work on.

Back to my stitching.
