So now that Hallowe'en 1904 is done it's back to one of my class projects from the Buggy Barn Quilt Show.
I love this Paula Barnes pattern, Hill Country Baskets, but then, I've never met a basket quilt I didn't like.
The fabric provided in the kit for the class just didn't appeal to me, except for the sashing fabric, so I thought about substituting Hemming House by Brannock and Patek for Moda.
These are the two blocks I made in class.
In the end I decided this fabric wasn't really me either, but sometimes trying something a little different is a good thing, the family has red and goes well with the gray and black sashing fabric so I'm hoping it will all work out in the end.
I'm working with a fat quarter bundle and have no yardage to speak of so I either need to come up with a pieced outer border or track down some Hemming House. This line is a couple of years old and so far the pieces that I've found online haven't been my more favorite prints from the family. Someone gave me a tip to look on ebay, and I may have found something, I've never bought fabric on ebay!
So far so good considering I don't have an end plan, I'm just piecing baskets.
