    I'm almost finished. Just need embroidery embelishments and to frame with fabric.

    oops. This is not the final photo.

    I read the tip about steam ironing from the wrong wide on a thick towel too late.

    Pattern was in Quiltmaker magazine, Nov/Dec 1993. It is a wall hanging of 4 blocks. But I tired after one block. lol ..I made block with cheater applique tricks. I sewed all pieces to used dryer sheets, trimmed edges, turned right side out, ironed, and then sewed down.

    That is so adorable. I'm guessing that's needle turn applique? I just took a class at the AQS Show in Lancaster two weeks ago and really enjoyed it.

    Absolutely love it! That ironing tip actually works very well!
    I bought one of those ironing pads from a quilt show that will not burn, and it works like a dream! Is this your pattern or in a book? can you share? I really really like this basket. So clever!

    How lovely! Will this be a wall hanging with one basket or a quilt with many blocks?
