Another Quilt Update!

No automatic alt text available.

I finished the Berry Basket block for Green Tea and Sweet Beans. This was a fun block to make. Not too many pieces so it went fast! I use the freezer paper method for applique. I iron freezer paper to the wrong side of the fabric and baste. Once prepared, I can applique onto the background. Very relaxing and it lets me watch television guilt free! 

I have 4 different blocks left to make for this quilt. However, there's a large appliqued border when the body of the quilt is finished. I don't think there will be a quick end to this quilt!

This is my next project to quilt for Quilts for Kids.  This quilt was made by the same friend who made the owl quilt I just finished for Quilts for Kids. She has a great blog which you can visit here.
You'll see what a wonderful quilter she is!

Hope you have a nice weekend. I'm working tomorrow but will be off Sunday. Not too bad!

  2. Love love love that basket--so cute--freezer paper method is my preferred also. Only instead of thread basting, I use spray starch to "baste" the seam allowance over the paper--and my little craft iron to hold it in place.
    Your 9-patch piece turned out so well, too. hugs for a happy weekend Julierose (making labels!!)

    1. Thanks, Julierose! I should try using spray starch to glue it down. I've seen that method before. Maybe next time!
