All of the applique is finished up for these sweet (not so little) cactus basket blocks! I guess I was really in the mood to work on these, because I just whizzed through them in no time at all. The top half of each of the basket was hand pieced, but once again I'm combining that with machine piecing. To top half needed special care, but the bottom? Not so much. I'm definitely not a purist!

I have to laugh at myself when I get in a groove color-wise or with fabrics, similar layouts and blocks, or even when the applique starts blending together. Ideas and fabric just seamlessly flow over into the next project and before I know it, several of my ongoing quilts have a lot of the same characteristics!
It's kind of like working in a series except the perimeters are not as clearly defined. Is that a bad thing? I don't see how it possibly could be. It's not like I'm turning out clones! Or hmmm... Do you think all of my quilts look the same?
