I Wasn't Going To Do It But...


...my friend Mel posted her center block on her blog and I had to follow the link.........Darn it Mel!!! *giggle giggle  You've inspired me to join in! 



Lori at Humble Quilts is having another Quilt ALong. You can find the beginning info in this blog post.  As soon as I saw Karen's block picture in the link up post, I decided I was going to jump in. I went directly to my go to basket block on the free pattern page on the Quiltville blog. I knew I wanted to add neutral strings for the corner triangles.

I am so glad I joined in this QAL. I'm excited about the next step. My first part will be to add a border to get this block into a usable for me measurement with a border that works for step 2. The wheels are spinning.  I love that there are no rules, only guidelines!

Thanks sew much Mel, I can't wait to see how we do step 2. Sewing with friends is the best!!! Who can I persuade to join in???  And Thank You Lori for hosting another QAL, they are always sew much fun!

I'm going to add my link to the others at Humble Quilts.

Striking basket. Love your neutral strings - they make your basket shine.

That's a fun, bright basket you've created. The strings in the background just add to the interest of the block.
