I have laid the machine appliqueing of baskets aside for a bit before I, myself, turn into a basket case!
In the meantime, I picked up a BOM I started back in January 2014. The quilt is called Civil War: Peace and Unity designed by Sarah Maxwell and Dolores Smith; the last in a series of quilts commemorating the 150th anniversary of the civil war.
Although I had all the 20 (yea you read right) Court House Step blocks done, I sort of put it away not even planning on completing it. I gave up on this quilt!
But, I kept it all in a plastic bin, sort of "in waiting." I even thought of just piecing the court house step blocks into a small quilt top and call it a done deal!
It wasn't until the Shoppe Troll, aka Nancy, completed her quilt and brought it in to show me that I remembered how gorgeous it was. Then, I fell in love with the quilt all over again, vowing to complete the top ... some day!
Well, "some day" came ... I pulled it out and started working away on the twelve (12) different blocks. Voila! The pile of blocks!
Guess what I'm working on today!
Thanks for stopping by little corner in cyberspace!
Wishing you a wonderful day! Cheers!
