Lori's sewing basket row was so cute I had to make it right away!
I have 4 favorite baskets...the two on the top, the red polka dot basket with the grey handle, anthe aqua basket with the pink polka dot handle.
The fabrics for the basket on the left are from Happy Go Lucky by Bonnie & Camille for Moda. The basket on the right is made from Happy Go Lucky and Vintage Modern. (My Happy Go Lucky scraps are officially gone now except for a few 2 1/2'' squares. May seems so far away)!
Basket on the left is Ruby and Vintage Modern, middle basket is Marmalade and Ruby, and the basket on the right is Marmalade and Vintage Modern. I love how these collections work together!
The basket on the left is from Marmalade and Ruby, and the basket on the right is all Marmalade!
I love how Lori has us add the sashing strips now. This quilt is going to be so easy to put together. All of the rows have already been trimmed to the exact measurements. I think there is just a row or two left!
50 half-square triangles may not seem like a lot...but what if I told you I made 28 sets of 50 hst's over the last 10 days or so? Yes, that is 1400 half-square triangles (they finish at 2'')! This project might have slightly taken over my life for a little while, but I know it's going to be worth it in the end!
They are all packaged up and ready to swap! In a few weeks I'll receive 28 sets...my own and sets of 50 from 27 other people. So yes, I'll have 1400 unique hst's at that time. The possibilities are endless...my mind is spinning! I used the half-square triangle paper by Edyta Star of Laundry Basket Quilts. It was easy to use; however, the papers do take a little extra time to remove.
I finished up these two Abby's Treasure Box bags the other night, too. When I taught this class at Ruby's Inn a couple of weeks ago I needed samples at different stages of the construction process. So it was easy to finish these up since they were already to the half-completed stage!
I'm hoping to do a little sewing today, too. I've been seeing so many amazing finishes all over blog-land that I think it's time for me to finish up a work in progress soon!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
