Happy May Basket Day!
I love May 1st and the memory of May baskets on front doors. As you know, a lot of my quilts feature baskets, so on this May Day, I give you some repeat pictures from previous blog posts:
Pattern for this one is: Birds of A Feather by Barb Adams and Alma Allen
In this picture, I’m pointing to the only basket block in my replica of the 225 block Jane Stickle Quilt. I’m also wearing one of my mom’s aprons.

So Happy May Basket Day! Join in our Design Wall Linky Party below and show us what you are making.
Later today I’m going to make a few baskets of flowers to put on the front doors of my neighbor’s houses. When I was a child I would ring the doorbell, leave the basket, and run away. My running days are in the past now, so I will greet them and explain what the tradition is all about. Please tell us if you have any May Day basket experiences.
