Baskets Completed

I went back and discovered that this basket quilt was started in April of this year. I bought these charm packs just because Pineapple Linda told us all how beautiful they were.
Now I have to Thank her for my favorite quilt! I love these soft worn colors. I had a lot of fun with this quilt. Thank you Linda!
Completed and washed, what a great feeling. I love this quilt!
A little close up , but I'm still having problems showing the quilting.
I love the backs. They always show the best.
For a couple of packets of charms, with no really purpose, this turned into a great quilt. I wasn't rushed, I took my time and I had fun. This may be the first quilt I've finished for myself this year. I feel like I've been working on something for someone else all year. This feels good to complete something without a due date. Now if only I can do the same thing with the Schoolhouses.

I have started the quilting on the Challenge, but it's slow going. I've only done some ditch quilting and am fearful of the real quilting. I know, silly. I need to follow my own advice and just get in there and do it!
Today I'm going to see Gail and now that I've finished the baskets, I think I'll try to get those Schoolhouses sandwiched. That will also take my mind off the quilting around the bird. I know deep breathes...

Take care, Brandie
