Basket Swap Blocks

I  received 10 blocks in a swap with the Repro-Lovers Yahoo group several years ago. These blocks were very well made by some great sewers.
At the time I made a couple of extra blocks to take the number to 12.
I've decided to use an old setting for the blocks, a zig-zag with half blocks at the ends of rows

I made two more whole blocks and four half blocks to complete my top.

A poison green from the 'Lucinda's Needle' range by Jo Morton made the perfect background setting.

Now to plan some borders......

Picking a UFO

It's that time of the year where we find a little time on our hands if we are lucky. Christmas and New Year Celebrations are over and the netball team and the quilting group haven't started biggest problem was deciding which UFO to pick to finish. I've settled on my little baskets made as a swap with the ReproLovers Yahoo group. The baskets are 6" and made with Reproduction poison yellows, greens and turkey reds. I will need to make a few more baskets and work out what setting to use.......
