Another border on my Geese Tracks quilt! The baskets might look a little like vases to you, but I know what they are. I'm liking this so much that I'm almost afraid to add another border on but... you know me. I have plans for this quilt and that involves making it bit bigger!
Geese Tracks quilt
In case any of you were wondering if I had depleted my scraps after the String Play quilt? Ummmm... not exactly. I think they must have multiplied while I was sleeping. String Play was my 5th scrap quilt made directly out of the scrap bin in the past 2+ years and look at this! All those totes are filled with scraps too. Is this shameful or playful? Hmmm... I've yet to make up my mind about this.
Scraps gone crazy.....
I noticed that Wendy over at Legend and Lace has another basket pattern ready to print off. It's been really, really hard for me not to start this Baskets Galore BOM. So very difficult. I love baskets. Seriously (ridiculously) adore them when it comes to quilting.
A few fabrics for the basket BOM
I have been printing the patterns off and hoarding them all the while gathering my fabric for when the big day arrives that I can start this guilt free. So many projects in the way, I was hoping to maybe whittle a few things off the list first? Honestly, I'm not sure I have the will power to finish even one more top before I cave and start in on these!
More gathered fabric
This is how I often keep stacks of fabric that have a definite pattern/idea/plan--in these clear zip bags. (If I have pieces cut and ready to sew, then I usually use a smallish tote.) The first bag with red etc. fabrics is for my Muddy Creek quilt and the second bag is more fabric for the basket BOM. My quilting area is pretty small and so I have tried different things to help keep me on track and make sure that I don't 'lose' important fabrics. So far this is working out as well as anything else. My husband has promised to expand my quilting room some day in the future, but for now I just try to stay as organized as possible. Ha! Not sure any method can work super well when I have so much going on!
