Stitching

My little redwork baskets are all stitched and ready to be sewn in to something. I've made a few blocks to go with the baskets. Next time you'll see the completed project. I've also been working on some blocks for a store sample, the 36 blocks are done and I've almost got them sewn into a top. I fell in love with the fabrics by Kansas Troubles and Jenny owner of Quilted Bear ordered some bolts for me, she even let me pick which bolts I wanted.

It took me a while to settle on what Lily will become. I was thinking about a stitching bag or a pillow maybe. Here she is all finished and ready to be hanging on a wall somewhere.

Have a good day and I hope you spend time playing with fabric.
