Going To Pieces

Scrap Basket, a pattern from Glad Creations, is a quilt I've been chomping at the bit to make for some time. I collected fabrics over the last two years - mostly Japanese taupes in shades of plum, pink, and brown. They are gorgeous fabrics and lovely to work with.

This quilt has been inching its way to the top of my massive list.

I probably wouldn't have started it for another year without a push from my friend, Nathan. He wants us to have companion Scrap Baskets in the June '09 Minnesota Quilters Show in Duluth.

Nathan is using 30's repros in his Tisket Tasket Scrap Basket. His top is done, and I've been struggling to catch up. At this point my Scrap Basket is in pieces, but they're all there.

It feels great to have finally gone to pieces!

Who cares about catching up with me, when your quilt will be more beautiful than mine. The blocks really are amazing.
