I made a few more as gifts, but then the pineapples took over, and I didn't look back--until last month. A comment by a friend about wanting to make a basket quilt someday gave me the idea that I should make a basket ornament for her upcoming birthday. I had forgotten how fun they are to make. I stitched up a few more last week. These are not foundation pieced and sometimes I am not happy with the results (those two are hanging on my little sewing room tree--they didn't get to pose for photos). : )
I can make blocks larger than 2", however, and to prove it I offer this.
Nancy (Blogging Near Philadelphia). She wanted someone to try it out and see if everything worked. I love this block, which she calls Polar Vortex, so I was anxious to give it a go. Everything checks out just great! Nice job, Nancy.
I think mine looks more like a Tropical Vortex. I see more of these in my future. : )
My deepest thanks for all of the concern and prayers for my family members facing difficult health issues. Know that your kind words and faith are appreciated!
Until next time,
