More baskets finished up for the Baskets Galore BOM over at Legend and Lace! I was only four baskets behind, that's all.... I've been contemplating starting Molly Flanders flowering snowball QAL and it just didn't feel right if I wasn't current with the baskets BOM. I don't know why I can't ever seem to keep up properly.
Blocks 8, 9, 10 & 11
I really did try to balance out the colors a little bit better with these four blocks. Things were looking a tad too pink, but now I think the yellow is winning! So far, every single block I make is a bit wonky too. Templates are one of those scary, dive off a cliff sort of thing for me. Sometimes I get it just right and other times I land seriously all wrong. I refuse to worry about it with this project though. If somebody else had made these blocks, I'd say they looked charming. And I'd mean it! So hello? Meet the eleven perfectly charming blocks on my wall.*wink Hopefully I can add an every-other-block to my quilt top to distract from the slightly less than perfect stitching I have going on with this project.
Waiting for the next basket!
I also got the top done for my wildlife challenge block quilt. It's a beauty. If you love critters and Christmasy/Lodge colors.
A completed quilt top!
Which I don't. But I know that it has enough sentimental value in the blocks to more than compensate for the perceived failings that I see. Nice to have it all ready to machine quilt too. I think I have a good two or three months to get this one properly finished up and moved on down the road!
