Another Quilt Update!
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!
