I took the chance to use one of the “big” prints from the coloured fabrics; also it seemed nice that the basket was filled with flowers… (I couldn’t resist to put some on the photo, too; Spring is just all around!). I must admit this is the first basket block I’ve ever sewn, although it’s pretty common in samplers. No wonder there was one in The Splendid Sampler too. I also played with one of the directional prints for the background. I don’t like to work with directional prints; they are difficult to align and involve (normally) lots of fabric waste. However, I’m glad I gave this particular print a try in this block (I only needed to remake the HSTs once to get the text in the right direction -good!).
The block’s info and link party are here.
