BOUNTIFUL BASKETS TOP IS DONE!!!

So very happy to have this done and enjoyed just about every minute. I wish I had kept track of how many hours it took! April 5th this year is a post with pictures of each individual blocks and black border pieces, with some detail about how I do most of my applique pieces. Mostly I used templar plastic for the templates to iron fabric around. For all baskets cardboard from cereal boxes was used as there wasn't much detail and several were larger than the plastic sheets. I have re-used many of the templates for other applique projects--either as is, or cutting a smaller template.

The pattern is by Janice Joyner for Sisters' Scraps Quilt shop. http://webstore.quiltropolis.net/stores_app/Browse_Item_Details.asp?Store_id=722&page_id=23&Item_ID=1021 Didn't she design a beautiful quilt? I saw it and fell instantly in love. The pattern wasn't cheap, but would have taken me hours and hours to design something like that. If my daughter doesn't want the pattern, I might do a giveaway one of these days.

This is one of my FAVORITE things Eileen has done. It radiates her personality, patience, love, and beauty. Thanks for letting me help in any small way.

Wow - that is incredible! I have a huge appreciate for how much work it takes to do this. I can't sew at all, I want to....and I took classes, but there are some things you're just not meant to do.

Stunning! Since you said the "top is done" I'm assuming that you have to put a backing on it and quilt?

It's just wonderful, Mom! I think the border might be my favorite part, but all of it is gorgeous! It's so fun to see it all together, after watching you work on various parts for awhile now.

I have been going through your blog and really enjoying the visit. Thanks for your comment on my baby blanket in the Quilt Festival. I was glad that you put in how you applique because you do a really good job!
