Friendship Basket


After seeing Victoria this weekend, I was so inspired I just had to make a quilt! Sujata had sent me this lovely little basket block, along with some scraps. So I combined these with other scraps I'd received from several of you wonderful blogger friends, including Tonya, Buffy, Mary and Helen, along with some of my own.

Those churn dash blocks are 4". I've never made a block that small in my life!





I don't know what got into me, but I really enjoyed working with small pieces. So I made hot pads with the scraps of the scraps. Those little triangles are about 1/2"!

As I count my blessings, I am so grateful to all of you for this whole new world of friends in blog land! Thank you!!

How fun! It's truly a bountiful basket- and your hot pads are an inspired use of the leftovers!

What a happy little quilt! Even better when it was made with help from your friends :- )

Just when I thought I could safely toss my tiniest scraps you come up with a new temptation to use them!

Your basket quilt is wonderful, what an inspiration your work is. I'm glad for this too, and for Victoria starting all this, where we can see so much creativity. I love the 60's dress from the other day. I would so wear this!

What a fun little quilt! It sure looks like you had fun doing it too.

Great hotpads! And because they're made all from scraps, they're not so precious that you can't use them! Recycling at it's finest.

Wonderful projects! And really, you don't usually make blocks as small as 4"? I need to start making bigger blocks, maybe then I'll be faster and more prolific.
