I'm was being very, very good, getting my bow-tie blocks all cut out, prepped and ready to go when I suddenly went off the rails.
Prepping my bow-tie blocks
Yep, the baskets finally overpowered me. It was bound to happen, you all know that. And, well... I might have already had a couple of the blocks cut out. Maybe. Not gonna admit to anything incriminating here though. And I figured hey! If I couldn't even focus properly on other stuff, might as well dive in and get these little 'ol baskets out of the way. A girl has to do what a girl has to do.*wink
Baskets Galore BOM
A couple little tips for those that haven't started this Basket BOM yet. Don't sew the curvy piecing on the middle basket upside down. It really doesn't work out well in the end. Just saying! And the basket that is second down on the left? Hmmmm... lets just say that when my husband brought home roses that evening (a very, very rare occurrence in 20+ yrs. of marriage), it couldn't have happened at a better time. Ahem. (Working for 1 solid hour on a single block apparently turns me into a raving lunatic.) The puckering on the Cactus basket proves that in-set seam piecing still does not fall under my area of expertise and I have wonky handles on the triangle basket etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. I'm adhering to Lori's motto and enjoying my 'humble' blocks regardless of any and all error. What's not to like about baskets?
