Basket Blocks Galore:):)

    My friend Lesley from Canada and I have been trading 4 1/2 inch basket blocks for a while now. I just sent her my newest set..and got hers in the mail today:):) I decided to lay them all out to see how many we have traded now.....
    We have 50 blocks done so far:):)   We both make 10 baskets every time...then we mail 5 and keep 5.  She is more traditional...while I am "TRYING" to keep mine as calm as I can :):) The 2 styles together will make a wonderful quilt when we finish:):)

                  This is Lesley's newest set to me.  As usually I love them....Lesley:):)
    I think we originally said we would keep doing it until we reached 100 blocks....We will see if we can hold out that long :):)

                                     Thanks for stopping in.....See.... I still quilt!!! :):) LOL!!!
                                                                  Much love- Sandie

Love them all! Especially seeing them in a whole big bunch...I definitely see the makings of some great quilts! You have certainly inspired me to continue making little baskets. Yes, let's aim for fifty more!

How fun, what a great idea.
I have been busy sewing flying geese. It's a good thing I am obsessed with the fabric I am using other wise I would be bored and onto the next project. My family says I have AADD!

What a lovely idea Sandra. When I first looked at the squares (before enlarging the picture) it looked like you were doing something with puppy prints!
I love the baskets.
