Focus baby, focus ...!

Well, despite Stella's demands, I've completed hand stitching the binding on the Scrappy Trail quilt.

I love, love, love that binding fabric. The fabric is from Sew Cherry 2 by Lori Holt! It is so perfect for binding.

My next UFO project is called Trick or Treat and is from the book When the Cold Wind Blows by Barb Adams & Alma Allen of Blackbird Designs. The project was started back in May 2010. I know this for a fact because I blogged about it. Certainly NOT because it was listed on my Project 2010 sheet! Oops! Thank goodness for project bins and blogging!

I organized what was in the bin, put on a documentary and busied myself with turning some edges in.

So far, I have 155 basket ready to be machine appliqued.

I need 291 basket blocks! I better get quilting!

I sense that this will not me a quick quilt to get done. But ... it will be stunning when it is pieced and machine quilted.

So, what are you up to these days? What project are you working on?

Thanks for stopping by! Cheers!

I started the basket quilt way back when too! Yours will be done years before mine, though. I guess I really should think about doing some more blocks. My dilemma was how to do them? I do the freezer paper/baste method and some are appliquéd down by hand but it seemed like so much work so was thinking of machine appliquéing them. What stitch will you use?

Those baskets are so cute. I love the chained quilt too.
