These are sections of the Baskets in Bloom quilt. I wrote about making baskets blocks and borders in April. Once the panels are sewn together, there's a red inner border and then black borders go on. Getting really excited about having it done and planning to have it longarmed as don't think my shoulders would survive fmq this large. It's about 61 inches square. Happy with how it looks so far. So many hours of work and a great feeling of satisfaction to be this far along. Trying really hard to finish up some ufo's!!

Hopefully, it will be a complete top sometime this week. Getting a bunch of cherries tomorrow (YUM) that will require a lot of pitting and other work, so that's the first priority, then this.
