My February UFO is ready to send to the machine quilter, and I have one more week left in the month! Yeah me! Here is the completed quilt top on the design wall:
Since I had an extra week before a March UFO, I pulled out an embroidery basket project that I’d only finished two blocks for. I am pleased to report that I have three finished now, and #4 is almost complete. These baskets are old patterns from the 1930s I think. I like these baskets because each one has a lot of French knots, and I like to make them. Here are the 2 that I worked on last week:
The basket handle is embroidered with a stitch that is new to me. It is called a basket stitch and I thought it appropriate to use on this basket handle and edge. The tutorial I used is here . I love to learn new things, and the internet is such a great tool.
What have you been working on? Please link up and show us, and no you don’t really have to have a design board! My only request is that you have a link back to this particular post included in your blog post. Thank you.
