This is what I have so far. Still have to wash the stabilizer out and cut the sashing and attach it. But this is what I have after 2 weeks of non stop sewing. My back is KILLING ME! :lol: :lol: :lol:
Hope to assemble this weekend. Might need a nice hospital bed to rest my back in by Monday.

my latest WIP

OOOhh! I like it Vicki! so pretty! Did you weave the basket...it looks like they are woven...if not fantastic choice in material. I am sure you appliqued the flowers. love the briliant colors. Get it together and then while you are in the bed you can hand quilt it....Won't that be fun? :D :?

Great job. Could you maybe take a picture of just one of the block straight on so that we could see the detail a little better. I think it looks great. Don't forget to show it to us after you have it done.

Sandra: the basket was wovwn using (2 ) 1 1/2 " strips. Had to buy some pressing bars cause I had never done anything like this before. I started in March and set it aside to make the lap/sofa quilt for a coworker who retired in May and a baby quilt (the butterflies) for a couple that just had teir 2nd baby. Now I have 2 weeks left to get this done. That's when I am going to visit family in New Orleans and it needs to go with me so I can give it to my aunt. No One is the family except my sister, Virginia, knows about this. Its just my deadline because I'd like tobe able to give it to her in person. But the hardest part is behind me (I hope) :!:

Beautiful, gorgeous, stunning, can't find enough words to describe it. I love the basket weaving effect, too.
