Baskets


February 2018, the Missouri Star Quilting Blog demonstrated a Disappearing Pin Wheel Basket quilt.  My mind saw that quilt in solid colors.  I sent for a 'layer cake' of solids planning on using each color only once, 42 colors.  I was not able to arrange them in a way that I liked but I wanted to try those baskets.

I took four basic colors and made a table topper, 25 inches square. 
 

I then made the quilt sandwich and machine quilted it.  The back is a red with white polka dots.  It made a nice practice piece for ruler work.  Not a fancy pattern but more time with a quilt under my hands for learning.
 

Last week I met with my quilting cousin Kathy.  She gave me this cute hot pad.  It is our cat Ted in a log cabin block 10 inches square.  I think he is so cute that I will make some for other cats in the family.


I am half way around the final row of Reneluk's Spring 2018 Doiley.  I was caught by quilts and material and that has slowed me down.  Have also made the first 33 of the 2018 Angels for the Christmas Tree at church.  Also, I am ripping out machine quilting (a lot) on a quilt that I am not happy with.  I am happy with the quilt, not my machine quilting. 

May this find you all well and enjoying thread in some form.
