Though these eggs are not in a basket, they are lovely, are they not? Fresh eggs are the best! These were given to m by my friend, Diane, who has chickens among other animals on her mini-farm in the city. They were just too pretty not to photograph before using!
Actually putting all my eggs in one basket has never been a problem for me. I’m usually spread all around the place with a finger in this and another in that. It makes for a sort of
schizophrenic hectic life, but at least it is rarely dull and I am NEVER bored!
Recently I was asked to be on the board of directors for the National Quilting Association, Inc. and I gladly accepted. This is a very worthwhile organization which is not for profit and run completely by volunteers except for a small office staff to take care of the day to day things. You can learn more about NQA by going to the NQA web site http://www.nqaquilts.org/ The NQA member magazine, The Quilting Quarterly is as fine a magazine as you will find and is a benefit of membership.
In honor of the Easter basket, I thought you might like to see this small basket quilt. It was made using fabric from a 6” square fabric exchange. There are two baskets made from each 6” square plus a neutral background fabric. Just the basket portions used the exchange square. It was a fun project and one I’ve taught at guilds who wanted to do a little challenge.
While I think basket quilts are charming, I’ve only made two of them. The other one is quite different using bright fabrics. When I have time, I will photograph it as there are no digital images of it on my computer. There are a couple of weeks before Easter, so I will have time to show this one to you as well.
Have you made any basket quilts? If so, I’d love to see them
Do you tend to stay focused on one thing or are you like me and “flit” from one thing to another? Inquiring minds want to know! Do you like the new look of my blog?
