Les paniers de Cécile (Cecile's Baskets)

Back in January, I started to work on some basket blocks for a SAL with Cécile in France. I kind of knew what I wanted.

Unfortunately, I don't know how to sew it. 

This is the kind of setting triangle I want. Unfortunately, I am missing a corner stone on top of the blue basket. Duh! The yellow sashing has to be with the basket not with the setting triangle. 

This basket at the bottom has a corner stone on top. Unfortunately, it should have been sewn at the bottom. Now I have two corner stones together. Arghh! 

Some pieces have been ripped apart so often that I had to cut a new piece. The yellow fabric love to follow the seam ripper. (Darn!)

Today is the deadline for the Basket SAL and, unfortunately, this is all I have to show. (Just imagine it with yellow all around instead of the gray carpet, okay? Thanks.) I promise to send Cécile a picture of the finish project in a near future.  Just not today as I have said enough bad things for one day. 😖

You can see more basket quilts at Cécile's place in a day or two. Enjoy!

Sew-a-thon Wednesday

Last Wednesday was my "Sew-a-thon" with new friends.  And you know what? I forgot my camera!!! Duh!

But I can still show you what I worked on.
The scrappy flannel quilt is half way done. It needs another 5-6 rows to be long enough for DS#2.

Made with crumb blocks.

Stars and Squares

I have to make more blocks but the newest white flannel yardage that I bought is thinner than the one in the first blocks. That stumped me.

But, hey, it's an utility quilt so, does it really matter (to my sons) if the whites aren't matching?

Let the sewing continue. :^D

I had a lot of fun with the girls on Wednesday and can't wait for first Wednesday next month. On the other hand, time flies by fast enough as it is, I don't want to push it.
